Cohen, Trump tape released. What does it mean?

Published

on

CBS News broadcast the controversial tape of President Trump talking to his former lawyer and “fit it” man Michael Cohen. The response from the left and right have been predictable with the left screaming “Russia!” and the right saying “he didn’t say anything wrong.”

What seems to be missing in both narratives is a focus on the underlying problem with President Trump’s character. Just as those on the right lambasted President Clinton for his extramarital activities, so too should they be asking President Trump the same questions.

In the whole scheme of things this is just fodder for a few news cycles. They’ll talk about it today, touch on it tomorrow, and bring it up whenever possible in the future. That’s how leftwing media works these days. They did it throughout the campaign and they’ll do it again now. This is essentially irrelevant.

President Trump defends himself on Fox News

With so much controversy following the sentencing of Michael Cohen and a plea deal cut with the National Enquirer, President Trump went on with Fox News to defend himself. In the interview with Harris Faulkner, the President went into his history with Michael Cohen, pointed out the Congressional “slush fund” that nobody says violates campaign finance laws, and claimed he isn’t even sure if the campaign ever paid “that tabloid,” referring to the National Enquirer.

Not bad for an interview with a many who’s supposedly about to be indicted, impeached, or both.

As he is wont to do, the President swung at his detractors. He referenced other similar incidences that didn’t yield the same type of attention that he’s getting and claims that this isn’t about the alleged crimes as much as it’s about going after him personally.

Trump, in Fox News interview, says he never ‘directed’ Michael Cohen ‘to do anything wrong’

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-in-fox-news-interview-says-he-never-directed-michael-cohen-to-do-anything-wrongProsecutors echoed Cohen’s claim that Trump orchestrated payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

But Trump insisted in Thursday’s interview that the Cohen payments were “not a campaign finance violation.” He has previously tweeted that they were a “simple private transaction.”

“What he did was all unrelated to me except for the two campaign finance charges that are not criminal and shouldn’t have been on there,” Trump said of Cohen and the campaign-finance charges. “They put that on to embarrass me.”

While some are saying the President is in real trouble from two investigative bodies and the upcoming Democratic Congress gunning for him, he seems more annoyed than concerned. Will this blow over like everything else that goes against him? Probably.

The administrative state is far too powerful

The administrative state is essentially a loophole in government that gives citizens no recourse. We don’t elect them. We can’t expect Congress to do its job. What are we supposed to do?

Philip Hamburger took to PragerU to deliver one of the most important talks the channel has had in a while. The dangers inherent to unelected bureaucrats and their fiefdoms is real and must be addressed now.

We can’t vote them out. Capitol Hill has abdicated. The founding fathers would be ashamed of the administrative state that holds too much control. Philip Hamburger and PragerU have made a must-watch video. The question is, how do we fix this?

6 years after Rupert Sheldrakes censored TEDx talk The Science Delusion continues drawing eyeballs

I remember the first time I watched Rupert Sheldrake’s TEDx presentation. In an example of the Streisand Effect, TED’s attempt to bury and warn people from watching it ended up magnifying the spread of the video.

Yesterday, I referred to it with a friend, assuming everyone has surely seen it by now. Of course, I was very wrong and was disappointed to find it was hard to find in the usual places. I turned to YouTube and found it listed as a “banned” talk, but even this bootleg version had over 2 million views.

I don’t want to spoil anyone’s viewing of it, but I’ll say this: in a world where scientific dogmas dominate not only the politics of the scientific community but also the motivations, this particular talk is one that must be shared.
