Conspiracy of Silence

, ,

Thomas Lifson marvels at the conspiracy of silence on the part of Republicans which has allowed the MSM to fabricate and keep running for months coverage of a completely imaginary story involving supposititious collusion with Russia for which no evidence whatsoever has been identified.

The stunning truth is that the American political and media establishment allowed a phony story – that they knew was phony — to dominate our political discourse for months. When James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week, he revealed that he had informed many important Congressional leaders that there was no investigation of President Trump and the Russians underway, even as MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, and the Washington Post daily carried stories alluding to an imaginary investigation.

None of these informed leaders spoke out! They allowed a make-believe tale intended to harm the legitimacy and therefore political power of President Trump to dominate mindshare in the nation’s collective political conversation. …

The American people were played as patsies, their attention diverted to a fantasy that had — and still has — no evidence whatsoever of its existence. That fantasy was propounded for political reasons, and used to subvert the outcome of a democratic election.

And except for Senator Grassley, the entire roster of congressional establishment held its tongues.

Be honest. If the RNC had evidence that exonerated Hillary in the Benghazi matter, do you think they would have spoken out?


The Republicans are mostly individuals most of whom have a belief in the constitution and what it stands for. For most of them that is the full extent of their “partnership” or collective or clique. They don’t speak with one voice, they don’t all believe in any one thing and they don’t typically work as a team to accomplish anything.

The Democrats are the exact opposite To run as a Democrat they had to give up their individuality and beliefs to fully embrace Democrat beliefs whatever they might be. If they are elected they will work as one and vote as one for those beliefs whatever they might be at the time. If they do not fall in line and show any individuality they will be dumped, lose support and funding for reelection and shunned.
