Principles, Schminciples – Lynch Mobs Are Cool If They Derail Trump, by Kurt Schlichter

The pendulum has swung quickly from accusations of sexual predation are not believed or investigated to the accused should be punished based solely on the accusation. That runs smack into the presumption of innocence enshrined in Anglo-American law. From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

Principles, Schminciples - Lynch Mobs Are Cool If They Derail Trump

The last couple months of success for Donald Trump’s administration have the liberals and their Fredocon buddies in a panic. It’s blocking their return to power. General John Kelly came into the White House as Chief of Staff and provided the much needed discipline that helped translate the President’s vision into the most conservative run of achievements since Ronald Reagan. And that has to be stopped.

Kelly has to go, and to do that they have to change the subject. So, why not lie about this Gold Star father and military hero and try to use his own honor as a weapon to get him to quit, or maybe bamboozle Trump into firing him?

Now, it was only moments ago when liberals were pretending to respect Gold Star fathers and military heroes. That was baloney, as is everything that drips out of their lying kale-holes. One might expect more of the Quisling Cons, but the real focus of these Conservative, Inc., saps is on getting back their pathetic sinecures in the Beltway milieu. They babble on, endlessly, about “principles,” but when you cut through their endless posturing, posing, and smarmy virtue signaling, their “principles” are disposable whenever disposing of them helps get them what they want.

 This time their scam involves Rob Porter, who has been “credibly accused” of beating up his ex-wives. “Credibly accused” is apparently the new True Conservative™ standard since the principle of having to actually prove someone guilty of something in a neutral forum where all sides get to provide their evidence and arguments is no longer a thing.Except it is a thing, and shame on you for going along with this cheap witch-huntery.

Yes, Porter’s ex-wives accuse him of various abuses which, if true, would make him a terrible person and a criminal. They are serious charges. But Rob Porter denies them, completely, and without reservation. He has worked with many people for years who have never seen any indication of any of this activity; they have seen the opposite.

Who do you believe?
