How Stupid Do They Think We Are?

hese days it seems like coincidence abounds in the precincts of leftism. And an unquestioning Deep State Media are only too happy to label anyone who points out the absurdities of the supposed coincidences as “conspiracy theorists,” having long ago abandoned journalistic inquisitiveness for allegiance to a political ideology.

A few examples spring to mind: Jeffrey Epstein’s supposed suicide; a “chance” encounter on June 27, 2016 on the tarmac of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton, whose wife would be interviewed by FBI agents over her illegal email server five days later; and the failure by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to find “political bias” in the initiation of the Obama administration’s outrageous and utterly illegal spying operation on the Trump presidential campaign and presidency.

Take the case of the “suicide” of Jeffrey Epstein. There’s a reason the phrase “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself” being tacked onto otherwise disconnected topics by people making public statements became a hilarious meme for a while. At the core of all good humor is an unspoken truth. It was a populist way of saying, “We’re not buying what you fake news media types are selling anymore.” And the flat-footed responses of the Deep State Media reporters confronted by these unexpected “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself” truth bombs were the best part of all.

At an LSU-Alabama football game that President Trump attended, MSNBC reporter Monica Alba asked a Trump-voting student on live television, “What [Trump] policies stand out to you?” The young man gamely replied, without cracking a smile or missing a beat, “Just mainly the no-nonsense policies and especially since Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.” Alba visibly had difficulty maintaining her composure but being part of today’s toadying Fourth Estate that must protect the Clintons at all cost, dutifully ignored the student’s non sequitur tweak and edto another question.

She gets the joke, but knows she can’t acknowledge it, as the word has gone out to the entire corporate media class that no one is allowed to question the circumstances of the death of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was as thick as thieves with Bill Clinton.

And the circumstances of Epstein’s supposed “suicide” are so outrageously questionable that any sentient person looking at the facts would have to have undergone a lobotomy not to conclude that a giant scam and cover-up occurred in relation to his death. But Epstein’s ability to expose rich and powerful liberals like Mr. Clinton, Prince Andrew and who knows how many others in his web of sexual perversion meant that the Bat Signal had to go out to Deep State Media members everywhere that no discussion of the possible murder of Epstein could be tolerated.

Consider the “coincidences” and anomalies that took place in Epstein’s final days and hours. Here you have the most high-profile criminal defendant in the United States, who had explosively damaging information on sexual predations involving perhaps scores or hundreds of the world’s most elite and powerful occurring aboard Epstein’s private 727 jet dubbed “The Lolita Express,” at his Caribbean estate wags nicknamed “Orgy Island,” at his sprawling New Mexico would-be baby farm, and at his Manhattan manse.

He finally ends up in jail at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Correctional Center in the custody of the federal Bureau of Prisons. He then supposedly attempted to kill myself but survived, yet was taken off suicide watch after only six days. Then lo and behold, both guards assigned to check on him fell asleep – simultaneously – and missed their rounds, both cameras trained on the area around Epstein’s cell failed, simultaneously, and the night before his death, Epstein’s one cellmate inexplicably was removed from the cell.

After his body was found on August 10, 2019, an autopsy performed by the city’s Chief Medical Examiner’s office determined the cause of death to be suicide after only five days, even before all of the evidence has been collected. Famed pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who attended the autopsy at the behest of Epstein’s brother, gave a must-see interview to Fox News. He noted that the three bones fractured in Epstein’s neck were indicative of homicide, not suicide. Baden said that Epstein’s neck “had been crushed.” It was not the result of a ligature (like a noose made from bedsheets), as was claimed. He noted the scene of the death appeared staged to suggest suicide.

Yet, the Deep State Media pushed the suicide narrative nonetheless, pooh-poohing anyone who suggested otherwise. They attacked the esteemed Dr. Baden for questioning the Epstein autopsy, with New York Magazine describing him as having “demi-celebrity status” and being fond of “self-aggrandizement.” Never mind the fact pattern he points to that is wildly divergent from a “suicide” determination. But this is our corporatist media today. Accept the Deep State narrative and move on.

Then we have Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton “bumping into” each other at the culmination of the FBI’s pseudo-investigation into Hillary Clinton’s outrageously criminal conduct in running highly classified government records over a ridiculously unsecure personal server, surely in violation of the Espionage Act and Federal Records Act, if not other laws.

The advance planning that goes into the travel of both a former president and a current Attorney General by their protective details and logistics personnel is immense. Two such officials do not simply have their respective airplanes sidle up to each other on the tarmac of an airport like you might bump into an old high school chum at Starbucks. The impropriety of the Attorney General meeting privately with the spouse of the subject of a high-profile FBI investigation was off the charts. But, we were told, they just discussed golf outings and grandchildren. Nothing to see here either folks. And the likes of CNN dutifully reported that it was only congressional Republicans who saw fit to question the circumstances.

And finally, we have DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz testifying to the Senate that, “We found no bias” on the part of those who initiated the counterintelligence operation targeting the Trump campaign, called Operation Crossfire Hurricane. His report itself said, “We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced his decision [to open an investigation surveilling the Trump campaign].”

One might reasonably ask: When top FBI lawyer and principal in Operation Crossfire Hurricane, Lisa Page, says in an August 2016 text to fellow Crossfire Hurricane principal, FBI official Peter Strzok, that Trump is “not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” And Strzok responds “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” isn’t that perhaps documentary evidence of a political bias?

Perhaps Mr. Horowitz was looking for an FBI “To Do List” entitled “Steps We Will Take to Undermine the Presidential Candidacy of Donald J. Trump” and came up blank.

Nonetheless, the Deep State Media, like NBC News, dutifully and breathlessly declared in its headline on the story: “Internal Justice watchdog finds that Russia probe was justified, not biased against Trump.”

A representative republic is severely impaired, indeed threatened, when its constitutionally protected watchdogs in the Fourth Estate abandon their most basic critical faculties in favor of advancing the agenda of their preferred political party. Eventually, the absurdities they foist upon a skeptical populace lead inevitably to their deserved reputation as discredited Deep State handmaidens, not to be believed.
