This is a quiz as well as a presentation of an example of shameless gaslighting.
Who recently wrote the following in the Wall Street Journal? [emphasis added]
A potpourri of items from the web and in the news, with some (let’s hope) pertinent comments upon them:
First up, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot spends long minutes quibbling with a reporter because he called violence in her city last summer “race riots.” After excoriating him for his opinion that these were race riots, she then admonished him for criticizing her own opinion, false though it may be, that 99.9% of criticism thrown her way is only because she’s black, female, (and lesbian). So reporters don’t have a “right” to critique her opinions but she seems to believe that she has a right to critique theirs. Different strokes!
Joe Biden’s administration announced recently that the border with Mexico is “closed,” which is news to most Americans who are incensed about the thousands of illegal aliens who pour over the border every day. Continue reading

In accordance with Title 50 U.S.C.A. Section 3033, the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) conducts independent and objective audits, investigations, inspections, and reviews to promote economy, efficiency, effectiveness, and integration across the Intelligence Community.
The ICIG does so with integrity, professionalism, and independence. We conduct our mission free of external influence and provide objective assessments, findings, and conclusions, regardless of political or personal consequence.

The Democrats are going to meet today to decide on impeaching President Trump, with a statement by House Speaker Pelosi to follow.
Impeachment. Not over the Russian collusion/obstruction fiasco but, this time, over a “whistleblower” complaint that is based upon hearsay. A complaint that nobody in Congress has even seen. A complaint that has already been determined by Department of Justice lawyers to not fall under the law concerning intelligence community whistleblowers, simply because the person who made the complaint is not complaining about anyone within the intelligence community and the person the complaint allegedly concerns is not under the purview of the intelligence community.
The Saudis are in the midst of political turmoil. An anti-corruption purge took place this past weekend, resulting in many arrests: [emphasis added to quotes]
Saudi Arabia‘s newly formed anti-corruption committee has arrested at least 17 princes and top officials, according to a list obtained by CNN and cited by a senior royal court official.
The list includes Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the billionaire businessman who owns 95% of Kingdom Holding, which holds stakes in global companies such as Citigroup, Twitter, Apple and News Corp.
