MICHAEL SMITH: I guess the Democrats think the Capitol complex should look like the Green Zone in Baghdad. The barricades and razor wire are said to be permanent.
Last night as I listened to clips of Sandy from the Westchester Block saying Ted Cruz was literally - LITERALLY - trying to get her killed, how Kevin McCarthy showed up on the House floor wearing a white hood and surrounded himself with a cadre of Republican white supremacists, my first thought was that she was just as dumb as a rock and in need of a good spanking.
After I got past the idea of giving her one, I just couldn't help thinking that these are the remarks of terribly insecure and paranoid people.
These reactions and accusations are not just out of simple ignorance or childish immaturity.
I am amazed at the sheer totality of paranoia and insecurity being exhibited by these people, these Democrats. AOC would normally sound like a raving loon, but she seems to be the poster child for the epidemic level of insecurity rampant in the Democrat Party.
But it is coming from senior members of their party as well. My only explanation for that is that these graybeards are cynical liars and political opportunists, absent of any guiding principle except the lust for power.
Biden's flood of EOs are just like the kid who tries to eat all the cookies he can before Mom catches him.
The reaction of AOC (and the others) is the reaction of a child who has been caught stealing cookies from the cookie jar and when caught, crafts fantastical stories about how the monster in the closet really did it.
I've never starred with Horatio Caine in CSI: Miami and am not a mental health professional, but I have had a four decade career of managing people and projects and in my professional opinion, these are the reactions of people who know they did something wrong, they know we suspect they did, and they live in fear each day of being exposed.
Guilty people sensationalize threats and in the absence of real threats, will simply invent them. In Quixotic fashion, they constantly war against dragons to deflect from their own complicity. They live to fight new straw men every day, building massive fortifications as a defense of attacks that never come.
It would be easy to pass this off as "just Washington", because Washington has always been a city of liars, immature children and internalized guilt - but this goes way beyond that. It has become so pervasive to appear to be a mental health issue.
The Democrats in Washington certainly appear to be in the grip of a legitimate epidemic of paranoid schizophrenia, and as every untreated paranoid schizophrenic does, they can no longer separate their delusions from reality.
Delusions are fixed beliefs that seem real, even when there's strong evidence they aren't. People with paranoid delusions are unreasonably suspicious of others. Paranoid delusions (also called delusions of persecution), reflect profound fear and anxiety along with the loss of the ability to tell what's real and what's not.
Now these people are asking America to participate in their delusions.
Houston, we have a problem.
Joe Biden the clown of the era @ .com ...
It's a pity for an 80-year-old old man to "puppet" the American bourgeoisie ... They founded America with their own money ... they voted "stupid politicians". take care of their money ... The politicians who have no money ... have to do everything for them ... Joe Biden is no exception ... how the vice president's salary has given him talent real estate over 100 million dollars? Why the Chinese Communist Party has rebelled and persecuted, declared war on the entire Southeast Asian sea, using weapons to kill innocent fishermen in the East Sea?
Because, Joe Biden is just a criminal of America, created by the Chinese Communists ...
A Trump advisor who promised to eat his shoe if Biden won is refusing to do it

A Trump campaign advisor who promised to eat his shoe if Trump lost the election now won't do it.

Harlan Hill cited debunked election-fraud claims, telling Mediaite that "Trump won."

Fox News barred Hill in October after he called Kamala Harris an "insufferable lying bitch."

As you start reading, consider this...

For her story to be true, every nation and every astronomer, professional or amateur, would have to be in on the secret.

A satellite of any kind is very hard to hide.

Marjorie Taylor Greene's 'Jewish Space Lasers' Conspiracy Theory

Greene's Facebook posts made several baseless claims about the cause of California's wildfires.

She simultaneously implied that the fires could have been started deliberately or accidentally by a solar power generating satellite, but either way the fires were conveniently along the route of the planned California High-Speed Rail project.

Greene implied that the Rothschilds, a wealthy Jewish banking family frequently referred to in anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric), space solar power company Solaren, and California officials all had a hand in profiting from the fires.

She specifically mentioned Roger Kimmel on the PG&E board, U.S. Senator for California Dianne Feinstein, her husband Richard Blum, former California governor Jerry Brown, and Michael Peevey who is on the board of Solaren.

"Then oddly there have been all these people who have said they saw what looked like lasers or blue beams of light causing the fires, and pictures and videos," Greene continued on Facebook. "I don't know anything about that but I do find it really curious that PG&E's partnership with Solaren on space generators starting in 2009. They announced the launch into space in March 2018, and maybe even put them up before that."

Greene suggested that if laser beams caused the fires, it could have been a mistake by Solaren when it was trying to transmit the sun's energy back to Earth. "That wouldn't look so good for PG&E, Rothschild Inc, Solaren or Jerry Brown who sure does seem, fond of PG&E. Good thing for Solaren that Michael Peevey is on their board since he is former President of California Public Utilities Commission, California's most powerful energey regulatory agency. Great connections right there!" she wrote.

--

A member of congress thinks there is a Jewish Laser beam to clear space or something for high speed rail and on Sunday TV pundits will ask Democrats why they can't find middle ground on Covid relief. All of these otherwise smart people will pretend not to know the answer.

"What I'm concerned about is the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives, who is willing to overlook, ignore those statements."
How to Spot Real and Fake News

...Critically Appraising Information...

There are two kinds of fake news:

Stories that aren't true. These are entirely invented stories designed to make people believe something false, to buy a certain product, or to visit a certain website.

Stories that have some truth, but aren't 100 percent accurate. For example, a journalist quotes only part of what a politician says, giving a false impression of their meaning. Again, this can be deliberate, to convince readers of a certain viewpoint, or it can be the result of an innocent mistake. Either way, it quickly attracts an audience and can become entrenched as an "urban myth."

Note:
To confuse matters further, there are also people who claim that factually accurate stories are fake news, just because they don't agree with them or find them uncomfortable.

Six Ways to Spot Fake News
Separating fact from fiction accurately can seem daunting. But getting to the truth is always worth the effort – even if it's not what you want to hear! Use these six steps to w**d out the truth from the lies:

1. Develop a Critical Mindset

One of the main reasons fake news is such a big issue is that it is often believable, so it's easy to get caught out. Much fake news is also written to create "shock value," that is, a strong instinctive reaction such as fear or anger.

This means it's essential that you keep your emotional response to such stories in check. Instead, approach what you see and hear rationally and critically .

Ask yourself, "Why has this story been written? Is it to persuade me of a certain viewpoint? Is it selling me a particular product? Or is it trying to get me to click through to another website? Am I being triggered?"

2. Check the Source

If you come across a story from a source that you've never heard of before, do some digging!

Check the web address for the page you're reading. Spelling errors in company names, or strange-sounding extensions like ".infonet" and ".offer," rather than ".com" or ".co.uk," may mean that the source is suspect.

Whether or not the author or publisher is familiar, stop to consider their reputation and professional experience. Are they known for their expertise on the matter? Or do they tend to exaggerate?

Be aware that people who spread fake news and "alternative facts" sometimes create web pages, newspaper mockups, or "doctored" images that look official, but aren't. So, if you see a suspicious post that looks like it's from the World Health Organization (WHO), for example, check the WHO's own site to verify that it's really there.

Remember, even if you got the story from your best friend, this gives it no extra authority – they likely didn't follow these steps themselves before forwarding!

Tip:
Trusted online fact-checking sites like Snopes can help you to verify stories that sound too good to be true.

3. See Who Else Is Reporting the Story

Has anyone else picked up on the story? What do other sources say about it?

Avoid leaping to the conclusion that all main stream media (MSM) output is fake. This can be as unwise as following every rumor or conspiracy theory.

Professional global news agencies such as Reuters, CNN and the BBC have rigorous editorial guidelines and extensive networks of highly trained reporters, so are a good place to start. But no one is unbiased, and anyone can make a mistake, so keep looking.

4. Examine the Evidence

A credible news story will include plenty of facts – quotes from experts, survey data and official statistics, for example. Or detailed, consistent and corroborated eye-witness accounts from people on the scene. If these are missing, question it!

Does the evidence prove that something definitely happened? Or, have the facts been selected or "twisted" to back up a particular viewpoint?

5. Don't Take Images at Face Value

Modern editing software has made it easy for people to create fake images that look real. In fact, research shows that only half of us can tell when images are fake. However, there are some warning signs you can look out for. Strange shadows on the image, for example, or jagged edges around a figure.

Images can also be 100 percent accurate but used in the wrong context. For example, photos of litter covering a beach could be from a different beach or from 10 years ago, not the recent alleged event.

You can use tools such as Google Reverse Image Search to check where an image originated and whether it has been altered.

6. Check That it "Sounds Right"

Finally, use your common sense! Bear in mind that fake news is designed to "feed" your biases, hopes or fears.

For example, it's not likely that your favorite designer brand is giving away a million free dresses to people who turn up to its stores. Equally, just because your colleague believes something doesn't mean it's true.

Tip:
Some stories that you'll encounter will sound "wrong," but won't necessarily be fake news. They could be intentional satire or something that comes from a humorous website, like The Onion or The Daily Mash, for example.

--

If these tips suggest that the information that you are about to pass on is fake, partial or malicious, avoid sharing it with others – even if you're inviting them to check it. Doing so could lead to rumors spreading and may harm your credibility.
