Actual Academic Nassim Nicholas Taleb: Jonah Goldberg Is a Half-Educated Bluffer
Taleb has written much about the "IYIs," or "Idiots Yet Intellectuals;" I'm not sure he's willing to extend even that credential to Goldberg

"The Expert" Tom Nichols, A Contributor to the UFO-Baiting Conspiracy Show "NASA's Unexplained Files," Reveals a New Area of Expertise: Remote Psychiatric Diagnosis
Remember, this is the pantload who insists that laymen should not dispute him in national security matters because he's an "expert," and only "experts" in a field should be considered credentialed enough to offer opinions, yet he routinely offers opinions as dogmatic and pigheaded as any 15-year-old's musical tastes on every field of human endeavor
See this, too-- the fact that Brennan is breaking norms to speak in such an over-the-top, partisan way about Trump shows not that Brennan has a problem, but that Trump must have a problem -- otherwise, why would the perjurious partisan megalomaniacal retard John Brennan claim he's a traitor?
Oh-- and you'll just have to assume John Brennan has a Secret List of Communist Agents in contact with Trump. It would be unAmerican to ask that he actually present this list at any point.
Have you no decency, sir? At long last, have you no decency at all?

Victor Davis Hanson: The Elitist (Media) War on the "Deplorables"
When I was in a Wal*Mart, I could SMELL the Trump voters. But even more than that, I could smell the whiff of revolution in the air. A revolution our genius self-declared elites just won't see coming.
Commenter "Trump Poisoned My Cat:" "Have either Jonah Goldberg or David French posted "The Conservative Case for Jury Intimidation" yet?"
Could also be a JV Last joint
The media demanded to know the jurors' names the day after the jurors asked about the definition of reasonable doubt and seemed to be thinking maybe Manafort didn't meet the legal requirements for having control over a foreign bank account.

I'm sure this is entirely coincidental. They didn't ask before this, and they didn't wait to find this out post-verdict. It just occurred to them to ask now.

When they get home, they'll find out the media is now hunting them so that they can bird-dog them for antifa. I'm sure that won't affect their process.
Shocker: Not-Even-a-Cuck Cuckling Alex Griswold Is Right There Defending His Very Good Friends in the Leftist Media Yet Again
Boy that Free Beacon sure is a grassroots conservative outlet that totally isn't a toady-front for liberal corporate backers
It's totes understandable why this quisling would give the Never Doxxed Anyone Crew at CNN the benefit of the doubt, I have to admit
A lot of "conservative" media people sure seem to have their eyes fixed on the real political prize of a contract at MSNBC or CNN. A middle-five-figures contract to appear occasionally on Cuomo Prime-- now that's a hill worth dying for!!!
Hey maybe the Free Beacon should just give CNN Fusion GPS' phone number to do dossiers on the Manafort jurors. Oh wait, pretty sure CNN has that number seared, seared into their memories.
Shockingly Enough, David French, Who Cheers the Deprivation of Conservative Free Speech Rights on Flimsiest (and Most Vindictive) of Grounds, Discovers an Important Free Speech Right in Lying, Leaking John Brennan Retaining His Security Clearance
To borrow an Instapundit saying from the Iraq War years: They're not "anti-Trump" -- they're just on the other side
Strange how the people who flap their well-preened wings the most frantically about the extreme perils of "owning the libs" are so gung-ho to own the cons, every petty, spiteful, MSNBC-ingratiating chance they get. Trumpism may corrupt, but NeverTrumpism corrupts absolutely
"True Conservative" Seth Mandel Praises Lead Singer of Punk Group Social Distortion For Beating the Shit out of Trump Supporter
Oddly enough, Seth was just whining that Brian "Tater" Stelter didn't question Bill DiBlasio about forcibly removing a reporter working for Mandel's paper (the NY Post) from a press event. As with the admitted liberal media, the fake-conservative-but-actually-liberal media cheers attacks on Trump supporters while whining about minor incidents affecting their own little clique.
