A caper? A caper is a crime. In particular, a caper is a crime story that is so interesting that they made a movie or TV show about it. “Caper” in common parlance over the past four decades or so is only used to describe a crime that is somehow flamboyant.
So, here is a headline from Politico. It is currently featured at the default page on Google News:
“Giuliani and associate give conflicting accounts on origins of Ukrainian caper”
Last year I wrote a dozen posts to report on the assaults by mass media on Evangelical Christians. I cited the many hatchet-job articles and a representative handful (out of many dozens) of editorials from mass media to document their collective attempt to suppress Trump voters and boost Democrat prospects in the 2018 midterm elections. Things quieted down after Christmas, but then heated up over abortion when a number of red states were working on bills to restrict abortion. The focus stayed on Culture of Death issues all spring, with a few occasional bursts of Catholic-bashing thrown in.

I figure most of y’all are plugged in to conservative niche media, so you at least saw a reference to a blockbuster story that appeared last week at Politico. It is a very long and detailed investigative feature by Josh Meyer, and it lays forth how the DEA investigations into narco-trafficing by Hezbollah were halted by Team Obama in order to keep Obama’s Iran Deal moving forward. It is a very damning report with a bunch of helpful links.
It’s a long read, but worth the time. Hezbollah funneling cocaine into the US for cash, US attempts to end it, and how they got away with it because ending it interfered with Obama’s desire for the Iran nuclear deal. https://www.politico.com/interactives/2017/obama-hezbollah-drug-trafficking-investigation/
