In a room where people unanimously maintain a conspiracy of silence, one word of truth sounds like a pistol shot.

Czeslaw Milosz’s observations of life in totalitarian societies are spot on.

Yesterday’s testimony by former F.B.I. Director James Comey suggests we are closer to totalitarian society than we have ever been.

How can I say this?

Well, we had an F.B.I. Director who admits to leaking self-serving personal views of a privileged conversation with the President of the United States to the press through an Ivy League law professor at that!  As they say in my hometown of Boston: there is no honor among thieves, they’re just as dishonorable as the rest of us.

But the leaking was not the worst of it.  Mr. Comey admitted that he conformed willingly to the benign characterization Attorney General Loretta Lynch (another career government lawyer) imposed on him regarding the Hillary Clinton email/computer server/national security breaches when her friend Ms. Clinton was under criminal investigation at the F.B.I.

So our F.B.I. Director “took a dive” upon Democrat command but was, as he testified, afraid to meet with President Trump privately or to inform the President that he was uncomfortable with discussing any ongoing F.B.I. matters … and he was unwilling to tell the public at-large that Mr. Trump was not under investigation!

While there is more that could be said, suffice it to say that we saw the presence of corruption at top levels of the federal government … and at the very top levels of the legal profession.  This is very alarming.

In addition, now that we know President Trump was not the subject of any examination of the alleged Russian hacking attempts during the last electoral cycle and we also know that Democrats in the House and Senate knew that the President was NEVER a subject of an investigation YET THEY CONTINUED PROMOTING THE NARRATIVE THAT HE WAS, implying that he was in cahoots with Vladimir Putin and that Mr. Trump “stole” the election from Hillary Clinton with the benefit of Russian hacking and support.

If, as Milosz says, truth is a pistol shot … Mr. Comey and friends, and the House and Senate Democrats never fired a shot.  I guess truth is not “their thing” – slander, lying, character assassination to overturn an election result and secure political power apparently is.

And let us not forget the media and the press – biased as they are – full of “unnamed sources” and untruths.  No Milsoz gunshots there.

The conduct of the lawyers involved, the Justice Department, F.B.I., Democrats in the Congress, of the press, reporters and media commentators was disgraceful … and very harmful to this nation.

Let’s me plain: totalitarian societies rest on lies – big lies, little lies, daily lies, foundational lies and the silence that surrounds them.

The Left and the liberals in this nation have increasingly succumbed to untruths since the explosive late 1960’s.  This is very alarming.

Mr. Comey and company provide a troubling indication of decline, loss of virtue and of liberty.

No wonder common Americans rejected Ms. Clinton and the Democrats, and the “established” Republican politicians in favor of an inexperienced political novice now under constant attack.

Shalom.
