File Under “Saving Our Democracy”

From: The Media Think They Run The Country. Maybe They Do.

Reporters have dropped all pretense of being concerned about democratic process. “Here,” wrote New York Magazine’s Jonathan Chait on the Fourth of July, “is what I think should happen. A small group of party leaders — say, Biden, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Hakeem Jeffries, and Jen O’Malley Dillon — should decide on a new candidate over the next week. The group would present its choice and instruct delegates to ratify the nomination at the convention.”

  1. If the MSM is the fourth estate, the intelligence community can be considered the fifth estate, and it’s probably the most powerful of them all. Remember Schumer’s warning.

    1. I always took that warning seriously. Trump either did not or hired cabinet members that the deep state had handles on. Is there anyone in DC who doesn’t have handles? You know what they are, don’t you?

      Ever tell the FBI anything that could compromise you later? Safer than a Catholic confessional they tell you. Never leave this room. Scout’s honor.

      Remember those raw FBI files that Hillary had delivered to the White House? Hustler Magazine somehow got dirt on a number of House members. Somehow Bill’s impeachment got nowhere near conviction. All just a coincidence!

      1. I don’t remember learning the term “handle” but from context it probably means the FBI has embarrassing information on you.

        1. Anyone can get a handle on anyone else, even if they are innocent of any wrong doing. Blackmail and extortion depend upon them. Having a family that can be threatened is a handle. Having a job you can’t afford to lose is a handle. If you have reputation you don’t want sullied, that becomes a handle. It takes courage and faith to withstand many of these handles. Rarely do we learn of people who stand up against them and win. We respect those that do.
