FLASHBACK: WaPo Publishes Study That Claims Millions of Illegal Aliens Vote
When The Washington Post's Phil Rucker describes Trump's belief that millions of illegal aliens voted as "his unsubstantiated theory"; when CNN's Jake Tapper flaps his hands and screams "3 to 5 million illegal votes???"; when PolitiFact DESTROYS Trump with a "Pants on Fire," it is all talking points and zero journalism. However, the Unified Message is pretty clear, and one we hear too often from these bullies: the science is settled, beliefs outside the settled science are heresy.

It's just that when I see our media gang up like this, when (during a crazy-busy news day) I see a preening leftist like Tapper OPEN his CNN hour to get hysterical over Trump's claim, my Spidey-Sense begins to tingle. And then it quotes Shakespeare, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
