Labeling The DC Press Corps

Sarah Sanders refused to oblige CNN’s Jim Acosta’s demand to remove the “enemy of the people” moniker President Trump has bestowed upon the DC press corps.

I guess the Secret Service protection Sanders now requires amid the calls from that same press corps’ fellow travelers to subject her to a lifetime of public harassment has Sanders not particularly interested in what Acosta thinks he deserves.

Is the DC press corps a protector of the people? Is it a professional Fourth Estate acting as a check on the ruling class? Those descriptions don’t seem to fit either, do they?

Not all the members of the DC press corps are enemies to all of the people.

But the great majority are devotees of every big government gambit launched since the New Deal.

They cheer the economically illiterate agitprop of a millennial bartender and the communist virtue-signaling of a backup quarterback.

They want to force men into your daughter’s locker room, Howard Zinn into her classroom, and religion out of her life.

They call for our discourse to be elevated while welcoming a racist simp to the New York Times editorial board.

They champion policies and policymakers who oppose free minds and interfere in free markets.

Maybe the word to describe such people is not “enemy” but I know it’s not “friend” either.


From The Noble Lie To Ignoble Truths

I don’t think Plato had former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden’s tweet comparing Trump immigration policy to the Birkenau death camp at Auschwitz in mind when he conceived of the noble lie.

Nor would Plato likely place under the noble lie header the DC press corps’ magical storytelling about a 2-year-old Time magazine cover girl who was separated from her father in Honduras by her mother but never separated from her mother by border patrol or anyone named Trump, not even Peter Fonda’s nemesis, Barron.

Noblesse oblige no more.

The lies told by elites these days are intended to foment social unrest not cohesion.

The ignoble truth is that today’s elites cover their tracks by feeding the public supersized whoppers to stunt their appetites for edifying information and dull their attention spans.

Never mind that the fix was in at FBI. See Trump’s criticism of Comey, et al., as a veiled predicate to martial law.

Never mind that family separation was not new policy at the border and that only the enforcement of it was new. Instead, understand this as an existential battle not for border security but against bigotry.

In other news, Paul Manafort has pled guilty to a violent crime for which he was not charged. ABC News reporting.
