There’s an old saying attributed to Mark Twain or Benjamin Disraeli, that there are three kinds of lies: “Lies, damned lies and statistics.” One damnably dishonest statistic that’s being quoted far and wide in the media in the wake of the tragic school shooting in Florida is a claim by the pro-gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” that there have been 291 school shootings in America since 2013.
Robert Mueller announced indictments Friday of 13 people in his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia has joined with the so-far-left-it’s-floating-out-in-the-Bay 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco in ruling President Trump’s ban on entry to the US from eight countries unconstitutional.
A cliché has arisen among those who are trying to politicize tragic school shootings like the one this week in Florida by blaming guns, Republicans, the NRA or the Second Amendment, that America is the “only place where this happens.”
Maybe Banks’ real problem wasn’t that he smoked pot once four years ago. Maybe it was that he was honest and admitted it. From what I’ve seen of Washington, violating drug laws is no big deal, but being that honest is a career-killer.
Unless you’re new to reading my commentary, you know that much of it has had to do with what we call the Death Of Journalism.
America’s spy agencies have long been a source of inspiration to comedy writers, with their penchant for impenetrable doubletalk (“Get Smart,” “Dr. Strangelove,” Col. Flagg on “MASH”). But I pity the poor comedy writers struggling to come up with anything wackier than what’s actually being floated in federal court by the CIA.

The White House press secretary (full disclosure: I know her pretty well) explained the discrepancy between claims that the FBI informed the White House of allegations of domestic abuse against former aide Rob Porter earlier than reported and the White House’s claim that they accepted his resignation just 24 hours after learning about them.
Trump Derangement Syndrome has become such a pervasive malady that it may be time to add it to the DSN (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders).
As much as the mainstream media criticize President Trump for lacking “precision” in his language, they take the cake for being deliberately vague and imprecise in theirs.
The Trump Department of Education announced that it will no longer investigate complaints made by transgender students who are upset at being barred from school bathrooms and locker rooms of the sex they identify with.

In case you hadn’t heard, the Winter Olympics in South Korea are now underway (they started on Friday, but so far, TV ratings are way down from four years ago).
What do you think of the official portraits of former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama that have just been unveiled? If you haven’t seen them yet, take a little time to check them out and think about them, and then we’ll talk.
Here’s some “change” that will help give “hope” of survival to American businesses and to due process rights. The Trump Justice Department just put new limits on so-called “guidance documents” issued by federal agencies.
President Trump had said he was inclined to okay the release of a response from the Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee to a memo outlining FBI abuse of FISA warrants to spy on his campaign, but after seeing it, he decided against it.

When the New York Times published its expose on “American spies” handing over a cash down payment of $100,000 for stolen NSA cyberweapons (otherwise known as “hacking tools”), along with a promise of dirt on President Trump that the spies claimed not to want, its look into the shadowy world of international espionage provided a look –- perhaps inadvertent –- into the shady and questionable nature of information given to the FBI by Christopher Steele.
At last, Nancy Pelosi has a reason to chant, “We’re Number One!” The number one place in America for “out-migration,” with the biggest negative gap between people moving in and moving out, is her congressional district, the San Francisco Bay area. One driving factor for the mass exodus is stratospheric housing costs due to all the Silicon Valley tech money.
