The Merriam-Webster Dictionary people chose “gaslighting” as the “word of the year” for 2022. And if you think it’s not, you must be crazy.

It first entered the language with the 1938 movie, “Gaslight,” about a husband trying to convince his wife that she’s losing her mind. But only in recent years have politicians, academia, the media and social media made both a science out of brainwashing people into believing things that they should know instinctively are not true (for instance, yes: gender is binary, and men can't get pregnant.)

Fortunately, more people are waking up to the scam every day. One reason the gaslighters hate Elon Musk so much is that he’s pulling back the curtain to reveal how they’ve done it. For years, they’ve gaslighted us that there was no political bias in the decisions to ban or shadow-ban Twitter users, when it was obvious to many of us that it was leftwing censorship of anyone to the right of Rob Reiner.

But now, expect more howling from the left as Musk just announced that he’s found the Twitter files on free speech suppression and will soon make them public on Twitter because “the public deserves to know what happened.”

If you want to know who’s gaslighting you, just watch closely to see which “news outlets” applaud the idea of the public having a right to know what actually happened, and which ones openly oppose that principle and attack Elon Musk for pursuing it.

Related: CNN scolded Elon Musk, “Be better,” after they claimed he posted disinformation about them. It was actually an obvious joke meme of a fake news headline reading, “CNN: Elon Musk could threaten free speech on Twitter by literally allowing people to speak freely.”

It’s easy to knock CNN for having no sense of humor and being unable to recognize a joke, but look at it from their point of view. That sounds so much like an actual CNN headline, it’s easy to see how they might assume people would think it’s real. Maybe the solution is for CNN to be a better news network, so their headlines aren’t indistinguishable from satire.

    Mike - I used to read your newsletters and believe by exposing the lies and crimes we could proceed with justice. I'm just a regular American struggling to get by and after 6 years of watching no just actions against criminal elites I have a fundamental shift in my thinking which translates to how I live life. I think many Americans must be like me. At this point all the news sounds like Charlie Brown's teacher. I believe we have only one political party playing elite ping pong. The rest of us are just watching a bad reality show where a lot of us are getting "voted off the island" in a game where we aren't allowed to know the rules. All my heart and attention now has turned to learning and teaching historical (not progressive) Christianity to my Christian family. Our only refuge is in God, and the USA has decidedly rejected the Holy principals of our Creator.
    What is the point of me even reading the news anymore? It's a sincere question. How do you stay motivated anymore? I believe Steve Deace may be correct in saying that we need to stop trying to be patriots and start thinking like Pilgrims. We need something to build on from the bottom up. Please give me some reason to still care about the cesspool that is America.

    Maybe he committed suicide, like Epstein and all those 'friends' of the Clintons.
