The fact that she doesn’t want to use the girls’ locker room is all the proof I need that she isn’t really male. - BK

I wouldn’t call having to wait eight years a “win”. The IRS officials responsible going to prison - that’s what I’d call a win. - BK

ARTICLE V CONVENTION ADVOCATE ADMITS 1 DOWNSIDE TO PLAN

There’s a fundamental problem in Washington, according to Tom Coburn. The American people keep sending representatives to the nation’s capital thinking they can fix the country’s problems, but instead those elected representatives become part of Washington. They seek not to fix America’s problems but simply to hold onto power, thereby breaching the trust of the people who sent them there.

FOUNDER OF FIRM BEHIND THE ‘TRUMP DOSSIER’ REFUSES SUBPOENA TO TESTIFY, WILL PLEAD THE FIFTH

The co-founder of the firm that paid for the creation of the infamous ‘Trump dossier’ said Friday that he would not be fulfilling a request to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and would be asserting his fifth amendment right to avoid self-incrimination.

Pleading the Fifth Amendment means that your refusal to testify cannot be used against you in a court of law. The court of public opinion is a different matter altogether. - BK


DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE NEW SLOGAN, AND IT SOUNDS A LOT LIKE A PIZZA MOTTO

The Democratic party has been trying to rebrand itself after the disastrous 2016 election that saw both the executive and legislative branches fall to Republicans, but their progress might be stymied by a very familiar slogan they just chose.

REPUBLICANS EMBRACE TAX HIKE TARGETING DEMOCRATIC STATES

Republicans aren’t usually big on raising taxes, but they’re really eager to eliminate the federal deduction for state and local taxes.

--NewsMax.com (AP)--

Editorial Comment

It’s hypocritical for Democrats to oppose this because coupled with doubling the standard deduction, it would mean that the people being “targeted” are pretty well off, and in Democrat vernacular, that translates to “rich”. - BK

TRUMP SUGGESTS AG, SPECIAL COUNSEL SHOULD INVESTIGATE CLINTON’S RUSSIA SCANDALS, COMEY LEAK

In the wake of a new report by the Washington Post claiming to reveal Attorney General Jeff Sessions communicated with a top Russian official during the 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump suggested the attorney general and Special Counsel Robert Mueller should investigate several alleged scandals committed by Hillary Clinton and one by former FBI Director James Comey.

--TheBlaze--

Editorial Comment

Since the Special Counsel is, by law, supposed to investigate crimes, and there’s no credible allegations of crimes by the Trump team, the investigation should be focused on real crimes, like the leaks and the email shenanigans by Bill Clinton’s enabling wife. - BK
