National Review Demolishes ‘Conservative’ Farah for Selling Out to the Liberal Media

At 6:00 AM Thursday, I will be writing National ReviewNate Hochman, Intercollegiate Studies Institute Written a harsh examinationCNN’s political commentator Alyssa Griffin is a chronicler of her rise from well-known family to the top echelons conservative political communication to liberal media darling, and from Trump supporter into skeptic to card carrying member of The Resistance.

And, upon the story’s publication, Farah Griffin offered a vivid reminder of how the Washington media and political elites have a razor-thin skin and vehemently object to even the most gentle outside criticism.

Hochman described how Farah Griffin was treated. “change in tone and emphasis”Her father Joseph Farah started her career at World Net Daily. After that, she was promoted to the House Freedom Caucus communications manager and Trump administration communications director.

As Hochman noted, Farah Griffin seemed like “a conventionally partisan Republican operative.”

However, she’s left that behind, instead drawing a litany of scoffs and dismissals from conservatives as she’s become what Hochman called not only “fervently anti-Trump,” However “sometimes anti-Republican” with newfound friends at CNN and ABC’s The View (where she’s the Rumored frontrunnerto be the fifth co-host

Hochman began his piece with her flip-flopping on January 6 (click “expand”):

In the following: Feb 2021: on CNN, Alyssa Farah, who had recently stepped down as a communications director for the Trump White House, said it was “important for members of Congress to step up and condemn” the January 6 riot at the Capitol. “And many have done that. I think Kevin McCarthy — you know, I give the leader credit — spoke out very plainly about the president’s role in it.” But when pressed on censuring President Trump, she demurred: “I think it’s an open question for Congress — I’m not going to play judge and jury on that,” she told the CNN host. “But I also think the country needs to move on from this moment. I don’t think we benefit from re-litigating, over and over, what happened that day. We need to be moving forward.”

The former Trump official was finally fired three months later The appearance was on MSNBC with a different message: “This isn’t going away. So to my friends, to the Kevin McCarthys of the world — this is not just something that you’re going to brush aside.” Five months after that, Farah, who had by then secured a spot as a CNN contributor and was auditioning for the nominal right-wing seat on The View, took an even more forceful line: “We are just acting like this is kind of normal, I feel like we’re just glossing over January 6 and moving on, and we absolutely shouldn’t. It is being investigated by the committee. I am hopeful that they will get it sorted out. But it’s devastating.”

The January 6th becomes your cri d’ coeur. abortion, gas prices, inflation, etc.) Your life’s story is not important. so difficultAlso, opulent, working people scoff. Farah Griffin must let the whole world know that when she begins consistently getting CNN hits and tweets which have nothing to do January 6th or Donald Trump, it is a sign Farah Griffin has become a regular.

Hochman was meticulous in his studies. citingShe has a slew if tweets and appearances in the past to prove her changes. 

She has shown her commitment to election integrity, including a December 2020 CommentIn which she decried “irregularities and fraud…in the 2020 elections”), Hochman argued Farah’s pivot to the left didn’t stop with November 2020 and January 6, 2021.

Farah previously claimed in December 2020 that Hunter Biden’s laptop and life of corruption was “a huge issue,”She will however be able to do so by March 2022. mocked discussion of Hunter Biden as a topic that doesn’t “even rank the top 100 issues facing American voters.”

Hochman lowered the boom even further when he called out Farah’s glossy, nauseating profile in Vanity Fair (which was clearly peddled by an agent and/or PR team) and comments about both Trump and Miles Taylor (aka “Anonymous”) (click “expand”):

FarahGriffin is Trump. Continue to that she “didn’t have any illusions about who the president was.” In a Glamorous May Vanity FairProfil, replete with glamorous photos of Farah sipping cocktails and posing in limos, she argued: “I’m not somebody who drank the Kool-Aid for five years and then magically found Jesus on January 6.” But that, too, is at odds with her public statements in the White House. I am one video taken during her time in the administration, she describes her first time meeting Trump: “I was smiling so wide because I was just excited to see him.” In having “gotten to spend quite a bit of time with him” in following months, she added, “I remember this every day as I walk on the campus — just to stop, say a quick prayer of thank you and gratitude” every day “that I get to serve this particular president.” She went on: “He’s a remarkable man. The more time you spend with him behind closed doors, the more you understand what makes him such a strong leader for our nation.” At the same time, she attacked Miles Taylor — the erstwhile midlevel Trump official who penned the infamous anonymous New York Times op-ed about the “resistance” within the White House — as “confirm[ing] that “Never Trumpers are trying to thwart POTUS.” In January 2021, she Telled Politico that she didn’t “have respect” for Taylor. A year later, however, she was participating in group phone calls led by Taylor “to discuss efforts to fend off [Trump’s] efforts to, in their view, erode the democratic process,” AccordingCNN

He was certainly fair in conceding she occasionally shows she still has “some conservative positions,” but he quickly added they evaporate anytime Trump is even tangentially involved.

Hochman concluded with an eloquent citation about Farah’s insistence to Vanity Fair That “at no point in my entire life was my goal to be on TV and be a talking head” Based even on a cursory inspection, “it’s hard to see her political transformation as anything other than an audition for the mainstream spotlight” You can make your money.

Hochman asked for her opinion and she responded with her rank elitism. “I reject the premise that my fundamental views have changed. But I’m fiercely anti insurrection…I do, however, think that most people who have served in the highest levels of government, who hold the highest level security clearances, as I do, often become less dogmatic in their views as they learn more.”

It is there. It is January 6, and all roads must lead to it.

On a separate note, notice of Farah Griffin flaunts her security clearances as proof those of us who aren’t on her level should submit to her ideology.

Once the piece went live, she uncorked a Twitter thread doing more of the same while admitting she hadn’t read the piece.

Exit question: Did Alyssa think she’s too important to have to read it?
