The Washington Standard

Conspiracy theory is the ultimate refuge of the apathetic. If you cannot change your own country, it must be that some greater force controls the world and there is nothing that you can do about it.

The Turks and the Saudis are rivals for leadership of the Sunni Islamic world, and so both have an interest in dissembling about what happened here and exploiting Khashoggi’s death for their own ends.

A cop has been fired after he claimed he was “trigger happy” and admitted that if he shoots someone he “makes a ton in overtime.”

The “mainstream” left doesn’t even attempt to hide its hate, intolerance and racism. These are indeed astonishing times we are living in. The very anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, alongside Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Bill Clinton — all of whom stood center stage. And now this. Twitter, of course, removes conservatives for the slightest infraction, real or trumped-up, but Farrakhan continues to spew his venom unhindered.

The attack on Brett Kavanaugh was not just an assault on a man, but an attack on an institution.
