The Durham investigation has revealed that the entire “Russian collusion” charge was completely false, manufactured solely for the purpose of ensuring that Hillary would win the 2016 campaign.

The key perpetrators, including the Clintons, as well as the leadership of the Democratic Party, and in particular U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, serving as chair of the House Intelligence Committee, knew of the fraud. As the New York Post reported in 2020, “As the grand impresario of collusion, Schiff has filled print and broadcast media since January 2017 claiming that he has seen “more than circumstantial evidence” of a Trump-Putin conspiracy. Obviously there was none in the transcripts…”

Key portions of the media which had already abandoned journalistic ethics in their determination to place their favored candidate in the Oval Office, eagerly went along. Pulitzer Prizes were awarded for their false reporting. The Washington Post falsely wrote in 2018 “Coupled with another groundless attack on the FBI and an apparent endorsement of a patently disingenuous offer by Mr. Putin to collaborate with the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, Mr. Trump appeared to align himself with the Kremlin against American law enforcement before the Russian ruler and a global audience.”

The crime was undoubtedly the worst in American political history.

Usually, campaign misdeeds end on Election Day. But the Clinton/Democratic Party offense extended far beyond. It divided the nation more harshly than anything since the Civil War. It had severe implications for U.S. foreign affairs. Lives were ruined. Federal agencies abused private citizens on behalf of power brokers — all for the purpose of placing a Democrat in the White House. Both the legislative and executive branches of government were diverted from their duties, although, to its credit, the Trump administration accomplished much despite the left’s profound efforts to continue the hoax, and distract the public with Antifa riots when the fraud became increasingly evident.

It was more than a felony. It was an unprecedented act of immorality.

There is a role for morality in politics. Advocate that concept, however, at your own peril. Undoubtedly, anyone forwarding the idea will be immediately assaulted by a legion of progressive critics pointing out the past foibles and imperfections of the person or organizations bringing it up, in order to distract the conversation from the issue at hand.

It’s the same logic used to justify assaulting figures such as Abraham Lincoln. As a result, a perfect environment has been created for tolerating immoral deeds including Russian collusion, biased journalism, and the abuse of government agencies and organizations for partisan gain.

The electorate has become cognizant of this trend, and is beginning to react to it. The results of the recent election, especially in Virginia, highlight the issue.

The public school system has been one of the most prominent examples of immorality in American government. For decades, powerful teachers’ union officials have subordinated the interests of children, and the struggles by wonderful teachers to present honest curriculum, to the desires of leftist-dominated union leaders. Rejecting objective education for propaganda, they have used their influential position to indoctrinate children to their views. Those unions leaders have vigorously supported Democratic politicians in return for their looking the other way.

Terry McAuliffe made the mistake of openly stating that parents had no right to object to this charade, and lost his gubernatorial bid as a result. Hopefully, it is the start of a trend.

The Durham investigation’s recent report, following McAuliffe’s self-exposure, presented a one-two punch to the environment of political corruption that has dominated the left and their media allies.

Despite the exposures, however, the challenge is far from over. Still guarded by a biased media, and having had the precedent of leftist officials repeatedly escaping liability for misdeeds, there will be no contrition, no soul searching. The only change will be in rhetoric that attempts to explain away the heinous crimes and governing errors that have so damaged the nation.
