Crazy or Compromised

Promoting a book, disgraced and fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is giving interviews to friendly television journalists, in which he admits to instigating both a criminal as well as a counterintelligence investigation targeting President Donald J. Trump. Amazingly, McCabe provides no facts or evidence, no probable cause, to investigate a sitting president. Instead, McCabe appears to have bought into a ridiculous conspiracy theory, suspecting that President Trump was a Manchurian candidate, a puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Dealing with “False Statements”

This is how it’s done:

Britain’s Telegraph newspaper has apologized and paid damages to U.S. First Lady Melania Trump after publishing an article it says contains many false statements.

The newspaper said Saturday it apologizes “unreservedly” to Mrs. Trump and her family for any embarrassment caused by the content of a cover story published Jan. 19 in the newspaper’s weekly magazine supplement.

“As a mark of our regret we have agreed to pay Mrs. Trump substantial damages as well as her legal costs,” The Telegraph said. The newspaper did not disclose the size of the settlement with Mrs. Trump.

Illegal Aliens, Crime, Damned Lies and Statistics

As Mark Twain wrote,

Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force:

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.”

Annoying Progressives

Here’s something I read today that struck a note and which seems altogether necessary to share with you all. Hopefully the author, Kurt Schlicter, will not mind. Schlicter advises us to “Annoy Liberals By Refusing To Care About Their Stupid Fake Outrages.” I couldn’t agree more.

The War on White Males

After the past few weeks, who doesn’t have PTSD? The Kavanaugh confirmation process has left everyone in the country stressed, whether they were for Kavanaugh or against him. At least those of us who support the rule of law, the Constitution, and our Republic have the satisfaction of knowing that justice has prevailed (as the Justice has prevailed).

On the Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing Testimony (Updated)

The Christine Blasey Ford saga doesn’t seem to be ending soon. While we await further word from the FBI, here follow some thoughts on her testimony, her various statements, and questions raised during the Senate hearing:

Ford testified that she didn’t know that the Judiciary Committee had offered to send investigators to take her statement, in private, anywhere that she wished. Either she’s not telling the truth or her own lawyers deliberately kept these facts from her, even though Ford’s avowed preference was to not testify in public. Ford has not fired the lawyers, which must mean that she’s okay with their deception, if it was deception. If it was not deception, then she misled the committee, at best. Which is it? It would seem to be malpractice for lawyers to work against the best interest of their client in order to further the interests of their political party. Will there be repercussions for these lawyers?

The Silencing of James Woods

This past week, Twitter silenced James Woods–an outspoken, smart and often very funny conservative voice on social media. His crime? Retweeting and then commenting upon a satirical meme that very, very plausibly mocked the progressive left.
