The first article ran at The Federalist, and I really like that the author highlights what he calls "the Epstein-media-intelligence agency nexus". Imean, none of it makes any sense to me without that nexus. No sense at all:
From the media to government bureaucrats to Epstein himself, powerful people are getting away with execrable behavior. It's time to investigate the Epstein-media-intelligence agency nexus.
Here's how he ends:
What a question!
The questions for Congress and the country to ask include: Is Acosta telling the truth about intelligence community involvement with Epstein? Who told Acosta to back off, and why? Where is Ghislaine Maxwell? What did ABC and other media outlets know, and when did they know it? Who were they covering for? If the intelligence community has such power over journalists, how often does the intelligence community tell newsrooms to kill stories?
For conservatives, the above questions apply, but more remain: The left talks a lot about equality, but what does it say about the leftist establishment when its media has consistently killed or underreported stories to protect the rich, connected, and powerful?
In other words, today’s news isn’t just slanted on a story-by-story basis. It’s slanted in the sense that many important stories never get covered, while small stories get overblown. Should conservatives continue to play this rigged game and treat these networks as left-leaning journalistic endeavors, instead of treating them as full-on opponents? Finally, are the intelligence agencies a threat to liberty, and what happens when even a Republican president, Republican appointees, and a Republican Congress can’t control these agencies?
In the end, it appears America is regressing, and injustice rules the day. The whole thing is reminiscent of the prophet Isaiah:
See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness resided within her, but now only murderers! Your silver has become dross, your fine wine is diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels, friends of thieves. They all love bribes and chasing after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, and the plea of the widow never comes before them. (Isaiah 1:21-23)
Well, maybe DC was never known as "the faithful city," but you get the point.
The other piece is by Kurt Schlichter and goes into the meme thing:
