The Cato Institute is aces at altering damaged conservative political narratives.  A Cato editorial effort in the NY Times on 9/20/18 is a bedtime story about ‘secular vs religious’ conservatives and is designed to disarm growing criticism of the brazen and growing hypocrisy within the Evangelical envelope.

Unfortunately for Cato however, hypocrisy is as hypocrisy does and it always shows.  People see it.  Thus this Cato tale has to convince the public not to believe what we see; that preaching God’s word with one face and acting the opposite with another face is not hypocrisy.  Rather it is God’s work, it is blessed.  In order to do this, Cato had to imaginatively reconstruct a politically useful God with two faces. A God which miraculously looks approvingly and blessedly at Evangelicals who are also two faced. 

How great is that for Trump Evangelicals and the Cato Institute?


The Anonymous Government

“We want the administration to succeed”, according to Anonymous, the unelected White House or government official who wrote of his/her plans to supplant an elected US President in a New York Times editorial:

“We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its (Trump’s)  policies have already made America safer and more prosperous,” the official wrote, adding, “There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.”

And so it goes. In order to protect GOP “bright spots” and keep the good times rolling, Trump’s own GOP zealots and appointees have engineered a coup of their at-risk President and his ‘daycare’ administration. ‘Rest easy.’ says Anonymous to the American people, ‘You are in good hands.’

Trump thinks Anonymous is a traitor.
