Please note: this article contains political commentary
Anyone who is paying attention to the geo-political scene in the USA and throughout the world is aware of certain things that have been happening and are ramping up. It cannot be ignored, though the mainstream media is doing a fine job Of either ignoring it or putting their propagandist twist on things.
Recently, suicide bombers on Easter Sunday took the lives of over 200 people worshiping at churches in Sri Lanka and wounded many more. Though political leaders took to their social media accounts to express sympathies to the "Easter worshipers", it is interesting how they could not bring themselves to utter the word, "Christians" as they did so. However, when Muslims were attacked and killed in New Zealand not long ago, these same political leaders had no problem pointing out that Muslims were killed in the attack even aligning themselves with Islam in a show of solidarity.
Of course, in the recent burning of the Notre Dame Cathedral in France, while no one was killed (thank God), this is just one in a long line of ongoing attacks of Christian churches throughout France, to the tune of at least one per week, if not more.
What is clear from all of this is that Christianity itself is under attack. Whether it's the edifices that represent the Christian faith or Christians attending worship services in those buildings, it is the wholesale attack on God and His followers. While those in the media are soft-pedaling the situation when it comes to Christianity, the same soft-pedaling is not the case when it comes to Islam. This is in spite of the fact that many Muslims after the New Zealand tragedy promised "revenge."
It is not just Christianity, but patriotism and conservatism that are also big targets of those on the Left. They want anything that smacks of Christianity and/or conservatism silenced and destroyed. They believe it has no place in society.
This is fascism, but the Left dutifully ignores or denies that charge. You'll also note that every time some tragedy is perpetrated against Muslims, the MSM is very quick to try to identify the perpetrator(s) as "white" and presumably, a "nationalist" (today's code for "Nazi").
On the heels of this and with respect to the release of the long-awaited, barely redacted Mueller Report, we see two things happening. On the one hand, it appears very clear that Mueller could find no evidence that President Trump or anyone in his administration colluded with Russia to change the outcome of an election. On the other hand, many on the Left are not even bothering to read the report, stating that unless it is released in a completely unredacted form, it means nothing. Many of these same people want Robert Mueller to testify before Congress. He was their "hero" upon which they banked on him bringing down President Trump. Now that this did not pan out, they conclude that Trump has Mueller in his back pocket, which is patently absurd.
This "circus" will continue as long as the Left has breath. They appear not to be concerned about actual justice, but about their chosen narrative; pushing their conspiracy theory that Trump colluded with Russia to illegally win an election. Mueller points to no such conclusion.
In reality, things are starting to unravel for the Left. Even CNN recently stated that the Mueller report does not look good for Obama and his administration, citing the fact that there appears to have been attempts by Russia to undermine the 2016 presidential election during the Obama administration, during the time leading up to that election. Did Obama even try to block Russian attempts? It does not appear to be the case, though people like Donna Brazille insists that Obama did all he could. I do not recall Brazille being part of the Obama administration.
For her to state publicly that Barack Obama did all he could against Russia has no merit since she was not an insider within his administration. She's simply mouthing an opinion, one that she cannot back up with any factual information, but hopes will be taken seriously. Then again, this is the individual who is known for providing Hillary with debate questions prior to a presidential debate. She finally admitted it and even said she'd do it again if necessary. So, to her, cheating is fine. All is fair in love and war.
All that aside, several reporters like Sara Carter, John Solomon and Kimberly Strassel have stated that things may not be looking good for what has been defined as the "Deep State." In fact, just recently, Sara Carter was on the Hannity Show to say that her sources are telling her that top DOJ/FBI people are ratting each other out in an attempt to save themselves.  We don't see this at all because the mainstream media (MSM) is too busy colluding with the Democrat National Convention (DNC) to push propaganda regarding President Trump. They have no journalistic integrity, but are simply mouthpieces of the DNC.
