As Mueller's noose tightens, and El Trumpo (on a personal political suicide mission) has burned his republican bridges (Ryan, McConnell, Ted, Mitt, Lil' Marco and No-energy Jeb) our Dear Leader's choices will be to either bail out or face impeachment.  If he favors the latter path, he will not be able to count on republican establishment support.  He'll bail.

And then we will be led by an ultra-right-anti-choice,  misogynist white Christian asshole named Pence.

Some improvement, huh?

In private, conservatives who knew better justified their return to the dark fringes on the grounds that it fired up the base and antagonized liberals. Or as Palin put it so memorably in 2016, “It’s fun to see the splodey heads keep sploding.” The result was a compulsion to defend anyone attacked by the left, no matter how reckless, extreme or bizarre. If liberals hated something, the argument went, then it must be wonderful and worthy of aggressive defense. So conservatives embraced the likes of Christine O’Donnell, a failed Senate candidate who ran a curious ad denying rumors she was secretly a witch. They defended Todd Akin, a former Missouri congressman who said female victims of “legitimate rape” rarely get pregnant. We treated these extremists and crackpots like your obnoxious uncle at Thanksgiving: We ignored them, feeling we could contain them or at least control their lunacy.

We were naive. By failing to push back against the racist birther-conspiracy theory—among other harmful, batty ideas—conservatives failed a moral and intellectual test with significant implications for the future.

We failed it badly.


During the Obama era, however, we crossed a line. The right’s echo chamber didn’t just remain silent about the crackpots in our ranks, it embraced them, exploiting their insanity for clicks and ratings. Take Matt Drudge. His site, the Drudge Report, consistently ranks as one of the top five media publishers in the country, often drawing more than a billion page views a month. Media critic John Ziegler describes him as the tacit “assignment editor” for conservative talk radio, right-leaning websites and a significant portion of Fox News.

But at some point in the past decade, Drudge began linking to Infowars, a website run by Alex Jones, a conspiracy theorist extraordinaire. On his site, Jones has suggested that the U.S. government was behind the September 11 attacks, the Oklahoma City bombing and the Boston Marathon explosions. He would be hilarious if people didn’t take him so seriously. And in linking to his stories, Drudge broke down the wall separating the full-blown cranks from the mainstream conservative media, injecting a toxic worldview into the right’s bloodstream.

Evidence of that toxicity came on the campaign trail on May 3, 2016. Months before the GOP convention, as Trump was competing against Ted Cruz for his party’s nomination, the birther in chief used yet another conspiracy theory to his advantage. This one was about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the bogus theory that Cruz’s father was involved in it. “His father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald's being—you know, shot,” Trump said, citing a story in the National Enquirer, a fake news tabloid owned by his ally David Pecker. “That was reported, and nobody talks about it.… It’s horrible.”

Trump not only got away with this gambit; he doubled down, embracing Jones by appearing on his show. The Donald also enlisted the help of Breitbart bloviator Steve Bannon as his campaign strategist—a man who had turned his website into a platform for the hate-mongering “alt-right.”

Never mind that these sites were pushing fake news and Pravda-style propaganda—that was the point. By then, conservative media—from Fox News to Rush Limbaugh—had convinced their audiences to ignore and discount anything that came from the mainstream press. The cumulative effect had destroyed much of the right’s immunity to false information. The media’s dramatic failure to get the election right made it easier for conservatives to ignore anything outside their bubble. So it should have come as no surprise when false stories—blasted out by Russian interests and others—became a major campaign issue. “The American Right,” Matthew Sheffield wrote on the American Conservative website, “has become willfully disengaged from its fellow citizens thanks to a wonderful virtual-reality machine in which conservatives, both elite and grassroots, can believe anything they wish, no matter how at odds it is with reality.”

The proliferation of hoaxes—and the number of gullible voters who believed them—should have inspired introspection among conservatives. It didn’t. Those of us who were slow to join the bacchanal were denounced as sellouts, traitors or elitists. Under the withering fire of social media trolls, one GOP politician and commentator after another fell into line.

Those who didn’t faced the wrath of their base. When Paul Ryan denounced Trump’s statements about a Mexican-American judge presiding over a case about Trump University, he was hit with an avalanche of opprobrium from many of his fellow conservatives. They believed winning the election was more important than pushing back against racial animus. They were wrong.

By Trump’s inauguration, the GOP had morphed from the party of the right to the party of the Donald. Conservatives who had previously agreed that Russia posed a global threat pivoted to embrace Putin as an exemplar of white Christian civilization; Tea Party activists who had railed against deficit spending accepted calls for a massive stimulus; the party of free markets endorsed protectionism and an economic policy that seemed driven by personal fear and favor; constitutionalists watched silently as the rule of law was undermined and norms of public integrity ignored. After Trump won the presidency, activists who had clamored to “burn it all down” suddenly pivoted to demand party loyalty and virtual lockstep support of policies, even when they conflicted with fundamental principles or contradicted what Trump had previously said.

A movement once driven by ideas during the Reagan era—back before the advent of Rush Limbaugh or Fox News—now found itself dominated by Kardashian-like hosts, intellectually dishonest shills, cynical careerists and alt-right bullies. Recent debates among conservatives, one commentator on Twitter quipped, “show[ed] the nuanced differences between a YouTube comments section and a chain email to your grandfather.” This has paralleled a surge in the anti-intellectualism in American life, perhaps aided by compromises among the people whose judgment and ideas I once relied upon and trusted.

Thomas Aquinas warned of the dangers of the “man of one book.” This now seems quaint. We live in an age where political leaders such as Trump no longer read books at all. They just watch television and tweet, rallying supporters with outrage and misspellings.

This is the covfefe we created.

You apparently missed gun running to Mexican cartels, wiretapping the media, benghazi, irs targeting... etc. Nothing will happen to anyone of any consequence to the admin. The govt investigating itself is useless.

Bullshit. Tell that to the Nixon family and to former President Clinton. Tell it to every former politician now spending all his or her time in prison. Tell it to Chris Christy's former heads of staff. Mueller's noose is tightening, and as the time rapidly approaches where the Pussy Grabber will survive or fall depending on republican support once he's indicted, your idol is making deals with the democrats! Your idiot leader is very much like a moth working hard to light up its own candles. Your boy, and the current republican party, are doomed. LOL

Then you better hope that they get trump for something big. Because if not then he's going to go after Obama, Hillary, Holder, Rice, Abadin, Powers, Lynch, Lerner, Jarrett, Mills... etc. Happy hunting..!!

You are simply too partisan. If any of those people did something illegal, then they should be prosecuted. I don't really give a hoot which party a criminal has served. With you, it's everything. I prefer democrats to republicans because nobody knows what a republican is anymore -- including the republicans themselves. Enfolded into that description are traditional moderates, ultra right conservatives, evangelists, the Alt right, KKK, Neo-Nazis, and several paramilitary outfits. No wonder they can't get anything done at congress!

Tell me Pkrbum: Why should we waste time legally investigating and possibly prosecuting former office holders when our country is being sabotaged RIGHT NOW by criminals who are actually in power at this moment? If we listen to you it will take years to legally attend to flushing Trump and gang into the Russian sewer from whence they came. Consider how our insane leader refuses to stop jousting with the insane leader of N. Korea. You ever see a nuclear bomb go off? I have. We can't afford a leader who runs on spur of the moment showbiz impulses instead of intellect. Trump doesn't think, he reacts as if he was a TV star in a reality show not the world's most powerful leader.

Consider: Neither Kim Jong Un nor Donald J. Trump give two hoots in hell for all the folks they supposedly lead. Reality!

You either want blind justice rule of law... or you want political corruption to serve your ideology.

Which is it?

Btw... that last sentence is not reality. Can you even tell the difference anymore?

FYI: Dumchitz...

It was the republican congress who refused additional funding for security at Benghazi.

This is what caused the tragedy, not Secretary Clinton.

There was plenty of money. The naive error in judgement was leaving the ambassador in a hostile country that Obama had just overthrown. Then lying and covering it up right before an election.

In May 2014, ahead of one of the congressional investigations into the Benghazi attacks, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., claimed the State Department "not only failed to honor repeated requests for additional security, but instead actually reduced security in Libya."

Our rating was True.

Unbelievable...why do they want to cut state dept. funds? To move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Psycho religious fanatics.

If we are a nation of laws, the current folks will be taken down as well, saying that the former office holders are exempt shows your hypocrisy, which all of you leftists have to the Nth degree.
