When ‘Fact Checking’ Fails, There’s Always Conspiracy Theories and Misinformation

The media likes to lecture Americans about the increasing threat to democracy posed by ‘conspiracy theories.’ The term, historically relegated to UFOs and the JFK assassination, has picked up steam in recent years as it seems to have obtained some political usefulness. Early examples include the Hillary Clinton private email server, spying on the Trump 2016 Presidential campaign, and the contention that Trump-Russia collusion was a product of the Clinton campaign’s opposition research. In each of these instances, dismissing allegations of wrongdoing as conspiracy theories proved more useful than trying to dispute what later turned out to be reality. The response proved so effective for politicians and campaigns that now mainstream media and technology companies have adopted it as a key tactic to suppress politically damaging stories. But what happens when these conspiracy theories turn out to be true? It seems to be happening more often and consistently in one ideological direction.

Was Biden’s Call With Zelensky Impeachable?

Center to Advance Security in America (CASA) Director Adam Turner called for transparency on the breaking news that senior government officials have been coordinating behind the scenes to shield a Russian oligarch from sanctions being imposed by the U.S. government in response to the Russian war in Ukraine. A recent telephone conversation between President Biden and Ukrainian President Zelensky appeared to focus on a request for special treatment of a particular Russian oligarch as part of the Ukrainian’s assistance to President Biden in his formulation of sanctions policy. The outlines of the potential quid pro quo are still yet to be revealed as the White House and State Department spokesmen have declined to release the transcripts.

Answers and Accountability for Afghanistan Should Remain a Top Priority

It has been six months since the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. While the American public is currently focused on another foreign policy crisis, the need for answers and accountability into last year’s events in Afghanistan should remain a top priority. Luckily, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (SFR) has stepped into the breach. This past month, this Committee issued a report critical of the federal government’s actions in Afghanistan. SFR criticized both the Biden administration’s failures that allowed for a quick Taliban takeover of Afghanistan and a botched withdrawal that left thousands of Americans (according to the report) and tens of thousands of Afghan partners behind.
