In Winston Churchill’s famous words, “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”
There’s never been a time when that is more true. But eventually, the truth does get its pants on. And then, look out. Because fully clothed, the truth is fixing to bestride the world through the efforts of a cleaned up U.S. Department of Justice.
In our era, the Great Lie that went around the world repeatedly before the truth found its pants was that Donald Trump or his team colluded with Russia to steal the election. Two and a half years of lying theater later, spun around the world by a discredited media in literally thousands of stories, the truth got its trousers on with the Mueller Report. No collusion. The lie crashed and burned.
There is a high level of confidence that the truth will be coming out through the efforts of Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his report on the origins of the Great Lie, and the efforts of the U.S. Justice Department (no longer working to undermine the President) and U.S. Attorney John Durham.
Horowitz has limited powers, including being reduced to only being able to interview current government employees. Of course most of the reprobates in the Department of Justice and FBI have either been fired or resigned and Horowitz can no longer get to them.
But they and their misdeeds are not out of trouble. The DOJ and Durham have no such limitations. They can go anywhere and they can subpoena anyone. And they are doing so.
And so it was a fearful day for Democrats and their media partnership when Fox News reported that Durham had greatly expanded his investigation. It was previously reported that Durham would be reviewing only the days leading up to the 2016 election and through the inauguration.
“However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.”
Barr and Durham have interviewed people in Great Britain and Australia regarding the origins of the Trump-Russia hoax. And the two men traveled to Italy most recently to talk to law enforcement officials there, suggesting a new avenue of investigation.
Now, as the lying machine is propelled by the Democratic Media Establishment, the story of what is happening with Horowitz, Durham and Barr is barely reported at all. After being all collusion all the time, with endless leaks, then all racism all the time, now it is all impeachment all the time. All of this was not about truth, but about taking down a U.S. President.
The New York Times leads the way as Executive Editor Dean Baquet has explained in a leaked video. The newspaper built its newsroom around covering the Trump-Russia collusion non-story and ran perhaps thousands of stories.
After the Mueller report cleared Trump of collusion, the Times repurposed its newsroom around racism, starting with their 1619 project and specifically aimed at Trump and Trump supporters as the new vanguard of white supremacy. It’s laughable, but they’re selling it anyway. “We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” Baquet said (with no apparent irony.) “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.”
But before the racism attack could get its feet, the newspaper is shifting again because of a more tangible attack line on Trump of impeachment over Ukraine.
The Times and its media compadres are clearly not purveyors of truth, but of politically partisan narratives. They send those lies and half-truths mixed in with some truths — the most deceitful mix — around the world and many people accept them as all true.
But now that the full force of a cleaned up U.S. Department of Justice and FBI are actually seeking truth, the lies may not get away. And it’s likely substantial amounts of the truth will come out in 2020.
