Right-Wing Conspiracy ‘Insane’ — Left-Wing Conspiracy Theories, Not So Much

Democrats and much of the Republican-hating media call the Republicans’ election challenge dead on arrival and say the effort hurt Republicans in Georgia. If so, why the outrage protestations from the left?

Many of the election fraud allegations made by team Trump have been ignored or downplayed by media sources from which much of America gets their “news.” So many Americans know nothing about the legal challenges that raise questions about voter irregularities, mathematical improbabilities, questionable extensions of ballot deadlines and unsolicited ballots apparently illegally sent in Michigan, among other factual and legal issues raised.

Yes, the President Donald Trump-hating cable TV hosts, pundits, column writers, newspaper editorials and legal scholars prattle on about how these GOP congresspersons “undermine the integrity of our republic.” But many of these same critics said little about the integrity of our republic when, for the entirety of Trump’s presidency, critics made baseless charges, including but not limited to: that Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin turned the president into a Russia asset fraudulently elected to do Moscow’s bidding; that under the 25th Amendment, Trump’s mental state required him to step down; that Trump’s violations of the emoluments clause make him a “grifter”; and that our democratically elected president is a “fascist,” a “Nazi” and, of course, a “racist.”

Democrats and the media realize that much of the country knows nothing about the concerns raised by attorney Alan Dershowitz, who campaigned for Barack Obama, and George Washington Law School’s professor Jonathan Turley, who says he does not support Trump and he voted for Bill Clinton and Obama, and former independent counsel Ken Starr. All raised questions about the election, especially regarding Pennsylvania and how its deadlines were extended.

Critics hammer Trump for embracing election “conspiracy theories.” But many who now call Trump “delusional” for questioning the election have embraced some of the most outrageous conspiracy theories, without the believers being held up to public ridicule. These conspiracies include:

Seventy-eight percent of Democrats, according to an August 2018 Gallup poll, believed not only that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election but also that this interference put Trump in office. Our intelligence community reached no such conclusion.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., falsely blames President Ronald Reagan’s CIA for playing a major role in the urban crack-cocaine epidemic. Waters even wrote a foreword for a book called “Dark Alliance,” that made this sensational claim. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post, despite their contempt for Reagan, all disputed Waters’ assertion. The San Jose Mercury News, the newspaper that published the CIA-crack cocaine allegation, issued a retraction of the most serious claims. The reporter resigned, and later, at age 49, committed suicide.

Prominent Black entertainers accused the American government scientists of inventing HIV/AIDS. Comedian/activist Dick Gregory said the virus “was not passed from chimpanzees to mankind, but was probably knowingly developed by doctors and scientists working for the U.S. government.” Bill Cosby said AIDS “was started by human beings to get after certain people they don’t like.” Will Smith claimed, “AIDS was created as a result of biological-warfare testing.” Director Spike Lee said, “I’m convinced AIDS is a government-engineered disease.”

Lee also speculated that the U.S. government, under President George W. Bush, blew up levees during Hurricane Katrina to force Blacks out of New Orleans. “It’s not far-fetched,” Lee said, “and also I would like to say it’s not necessarily blow it up. But, the residents of that ward, they believe it, there was a Hurricane Betsy in ’65, the same that happened where a choice had to be made, one neighborhood got to save another neighborhood and flood another ‘hood, flood another neighborhood.”

So, spare us the concern about irresponsible “conspiracy theories” given the left’s embrace of several, including the damnable lie that the police engage in “systemic” racism against Blacks. For four years, Democrats like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Rep. John Lewis called Trump “illegitimate.” Democrats and the media do not want a Biden presidency similarly handicapped.

      1. Notice how the House Fools called yesterday’s. Protest an Outrage. But called the Burning, Looting An shooting a peaceful demonstration. Jerry Nadler called the Riots RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION. 🙈

  1. We all know how unfairly Trump was treated by the News media but today’s news personnel and reporters are all Marxist so what does one expect to come from them. They are like children who are refused a cookie. We will, from this day forward, get only the news they decide we should hear and then it will only be how they see things. So sad!

  2. I have only one comment for the entire next 4 years – SCREW BIDEN AND THE REST OF THE DUMBOCRATS. Bubble head biden will NEVER be my president – PERIOD !

    1. AMEN TO THAT BUT WHETHER BIDEN BELIEVES IT OR NOT . ..THE COMMUNIST DEM PARTY HAS USED HIM AS THEIR PRESIDENT. IN REALITY, HARRIS WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT . . . THE ADM AND THE DEM PARTY WILL SLOWLY CLOSE THE DOOR ON BIDEN . . . DEMENTIA IS SLOWLY CLOSING IN. I DOUBT IF BIDEN HAS ACTUALLY
      MADE MANY OF THE DECISIONS . ..HE IS THE FAKE DEM PARTY CANDICATE . .. THEY PUT FORTH A NAME AND HE AUTOMATICALLY SAYS “YES” FOR HIS CABINET, ETC. THE REAL BIDEN CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN RUN BY MARXIST BERNIE AND MARXIST KAMALA . . .SHE IS NOT FOOLING ME IN ANY WAY. SHE WILL BE PRESIDENT AND SHE HAS
      ALREADY SIGNED A PACT WITH “SATAN”. A VERY WELL KNOWN BIBLE PROPHET, YES PROPHET, SAID OVER 4 YEARS AGO THAT THERE WOULD BE A WOMAN PRESIDENT; HOWEVER, HE ALSO SAID SHE WOULD BE VERY “EVIL” NO NAMES GIVEN, NO PARTY AFFILIATION GIVEN BY THE PROPHET. NO, HE WAS NOT PAID BY ANYONE TO SAY IT OVER 4 YEARS AGO .

  3. Larry Elder is a good news contributor. He tells the truth like other news anchors – Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura, Judge Jannine and Mark Lavine. I like them all. All I can say is good vs. evil. They all know President Trump is a good president, from the bottom of his heart. he wanna help our country. but his enemies are all over. I should say not to concede cuz democrats, and some Rinos, deep states are not for America. they are for foreign countries. they are all after our tax payers money. God bless our President and our country!

    1. Asianladyphil:

      You are so correct !!!
      We can only hope God will Bless him, protect him, his family !!!
      He is a good men, a big patriot and what the left has done to him for 5 years, they must be ashamed of themselves and we pray Karma will take care of each one of them !!!

  4. It is a waste being on any of these sites as we can not really speak freely anymore. If we could I believe there would be some big changes.

  5. What a relief Mr. Elder has not succumbed to the ways of the current evil people who despise President Trump. It takes an honest, wise person to recognize the good in those with the same character.

    Despicable characters only see the evil in others.
