Dangers of magic-thinking in politicians and a Special Master granted

Today’s show opens with a review of term I use often when dealing with Leftists – magic-thinking. It goes hand-in-hand with another phrase I often use to describe the juvenile thinking and behaviors in the current regime. While magic-thinking is great for actors and for young children who engage in make-believe, it is dangerous when embodied by those in government. A politician suffering from and over-abundance of magic-thinking, often uses the power of their position to force that thinking onto us.

A great example of this can be illustrated with Governor Gavin Newsome’s recent decree that no gasoline powered vehicle will be sold in California beginning in 2035. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm thinks it’s a great idea and that California is leading the way for the rest of the world.

But, only days after making the decree, the same state of California is now worried it lacks the electrical infrastructure to manage a heat wave and have begged residents NOT to charge their electric vehicles during peak hours. This is what happens when you let people exert their magic-thinking over the lives of those who elected them. The technology is not there to handle the needs already, but magic-thinking tells them it will all work out – magically.

Another example of this can be seen in a recent exchange between White House correspondent Peter Doocy and Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. It seems Karine did not accept the 2016 presidential election nor Governor Brian Kemp’s (R-GA) election against Stacy Abrams. The White House has said not accepting election results is an example of an extremist position that is dangerous to our democracy. When asked what is different about today versus then, she simply said the comparison was “ridiculous.” That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, there is no need to answer the question or strive for any consistency. All that matters is when they do something it’s considered righteous, but if the opposition does the same it’s considered a threat to our democracy. That’s what happens with magic-thinking.

Now, I have to get into Judge Aileen Cannon’s order, released yesterday, granting Donald Trump’s request for a special master to review everything seized in the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. I spend time breaking down pertinent parts of the judges order and it seems, at least for now, damning for the Biden DOJ and is in support of the Plaintiff, Donald Trump.

The most devastating finding in the Judge’s order comes at the closing when she said, “the risk that the [Biden DOJ’s] filter review process will not adequately safeguard [Trump’s] privileged and personal materials in terms of exposure to either the Investigative Team or the media – Plaintiff has sufficiently established irreparable injury.” In other words, the selective leaks, the changing narrative, the lies and the obfuscation are so one-sided already, that it may not be possible for Donald Trump to ever recover from those injuries brought to bear on him or his character as a result of the Biden DOJ.

What we had all better come to terms with and quickly, is the knowledge that once an unprecedented action has been allowed to take place, it now establishes precedent. In so doing, it is only a matter of time before the tables are turned and today’s opposition party decides they can do the same thing to their opponent. Is that really the America in which we want to live?
