Something which I find to be very disappointing about many political “Conservatives” in 2020 is something that 12-time award-winning and prize-winning journalist JANE MAYER emphasizes in her award-winning book—“DARK MONEY: THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE BILLIONAIRES BEHIND THE RISE OF THE RADICAL RIGHT.”
She points out that many of today’s conservatives believe that their “ENDS” (including winning national elections) justify their use of any and all immoral and unethical “MEANS” (including the use of “STEALTH TACTICS” such as lying, making things up, being sneaky, deceptive, and misleading, providing false information and misinformation and phony and fake research, extensive use of think-tanks which produce false propaganda which is disguised as being objective/scientific research, and trying to hide from the public that many of them want to abolish most, if not all, federal government social programs that help people such as Social Security and Medicare).
This is particularly true of the biggest and wealthiest campaign donors to conservative-Republican candidates.
To my knowledge, nothing in her book has ever been successfully refuted by anyone. I have mentioned her book in many of my previous letters and articles, and no conservative has ever challenged it. They all ignore it and avoid it as if it is “Kryptonite” to them.
