Given These Political Goals What “Facts” Can We Create?

There’s a wonderful phrase I’ve used many time:

“Given these Conclusions what Assumptions can we draw?”

I often point out folks using that broken line of “reasoning”.

I now think we need to add a Political Manipulation version:

Given these Political Goals, what “Facts” can we create?

Bongino at about 26 minutes shows why this is so bad. See, Totalitarians and Dictators tell their “intelligence” agencies what is the present opponent to demonize, and the Intel Agency is tasked to create “facts” and narrative to support that position. In a free nation, the Intel Agency digs up facts, does analysis, and reports to the leadership on what the real threats are at that time.

The Dims are doing things in the Totalitarian / Fascist / Dictator mode.

57 minutes:

A show well worth watching.

Explosive new details surface about the FBI’s activities in days prior to the January 6th Capitol Hill incident. In this episode, I discuss the breaking details, along with the latest troubling developments in the Covid coverup.

    Civilization fell,when the Bureaus changed from Evidence based Policy making over to Policy Based Evidence manufacturing.
    We may not have seen or sensed it then,but we are living the results.
    These institutions on which our style of government is built,have fallen apart.
    They are corpses infested with creatures who pretend the institution still functions as they poison everything they touch.
    “Respect Muh Authority” and closely followed by “Silence I kill you”..
    These letter agencies of “law and Order” are bureaucracies first and foremost.
    Bureaucrats hate surprise and uncertainty.
    Far more comfortable for the “Answers” to be preordained.
    So creating the very domestic terrorists you are tasked with finding,that is Double Plus Good.
    Lying is vital to their paycheck,why should we expect honesty?

    Just as we have mostly all come to this place,in time and understanding, from the despicable abuse of the scientific method that is “Climatology”,where Government Agencies have worked together to abuse their authority and our values,creating a Cult of Calamitous Climate, through which they justify massive new ways of stealing from us.
    Now we observe the same mindset at play.
    Destroying the illusion of Law and Order..Justice for all.
    And the corruption is now so deep,that a Federal Agent can testify to a Court; “Yes your Honour,we know the defendant is guilty,for we convinced him to and enabled him, to commit all for which he is charged..”
    And the Judge nods “Wisely” and sentences the sucker.

    I think we got the full shaft when Wray said 2 things – #1 – there was no evidence of Antifa involved with the Jan 6 entering of the Capitol (Hello John Sullivan!!!!)

    #2 – THe Scalise shooter was a death by cop event (no cops in evidence when he started firing).

    That is all anyone needs to know to understand that what the swamp says is just an outright lie. That they cannot even back up with facts.

    Just OMG! level Truthiness packed into 14 minutes of memes & video.

    I love the way Putin knows 450-ish Peaceful Protesters (it was NOT an insurrection…) from 6 Jan are being held in prison…

    Be prepared to hit pause on some of the memes as they may go faster than an easy reading speed:

    Tucker Carlson and Revolver News publish an expose revealing the FBI’s direct involvement in planning and organizing events at the Capitol Building in January. Yet; based on those actions and events, the US Government justifies a massive crackdown on supporters of the party presently in opposition, imprisoning and torturing hundreds of those supporters without trial. The governing party has moved beyond the reasonable norms of politics and, in many ways, has already engaged its opponents *by other means.*

    This probably fits here as well as anywhere else (IMO)

  8. YMMV says:

    450 in prison, but 525 arrested and charged?

    “Knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority”

    Presumably, the usual bail thing applies. Does ‘prison’ used here imply more than ‘jail’?

  9. E.M.Smith says:


    In common use “jail” and “prison” are often used interchangeably.

    In more formal use, “jail” is usually a local police lockup while “prison” means State Prison or Federal Prison and is a much larger facility with much stronger procedures and walls, used for harder criminals prosecuted under harsher State & Federal laws for more major crimes. I.e. you won’t find folks sleeping off a drunk episode nor arrested for a bar fight in Federal Prison… and you are very unlikely to find someone arrested for Terrorism and Explosives Use in the City Jail other than for transport further on.

    So usually “county jail” and “State prison”, with the former having folks convicted of minor crimes or awaiting sentencing / trial for more minor crimes and the latter being more likely to have major drug lords, murderers, and others convicted in the State courts or Federal courts of more major crimes.

    Yet we can still say someone was imprisoned in the city jail (the city jail being where the Drunk Tank is usually located and where folks go to cool off after having a flower stomping dispute with a neighbor…)

    But in practice most folks just say either “jail” or “prison” as it suits the flow of their sentence and they don’t think about the finer points.
