You gotta like someone with a sense of humor. It was
reported yesterday that Atty. Gen. Barr and Nancy Pelosi were both at a
National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol and that Barr
approached Speaker Pelosi and asked, “Madam
Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” Supposedly the two laughed about it,
but I suspect Nancy’s laughter was pained. I so hope this is a true story.
Also this. You’re going to need more popcorn. I
mentioned that Trey Gowdy pointedly mentioned that Barr needed to look into emails
between Comey and Brennan. Now those two are finger
pointing at each other. Too funny for
Things to Know About the Prosecutor Investigating Spying on Trump Campaign. It looks like they have the right guy on the case. Let’s see
some perp walks. John Yoo was Deputy Assistant Attorney General under Bush 43.
He told Fox News that in appointing a U.S. Attorney to investigate Spygate,
Bill Barr told the world to expect indictments. I hope he’s right. I’ve found
my outlook and my mood has improved considerably starting with Bill Barr’s
appearance in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Here’s a great editorial
Georgia’s proposed new pro-life legislation has been
in the news a lot. It’s known as the “Heartbeat Bill.” Whether you are
pro-abortion of pro-life, at least be honest in how you frame your response to
the bill. The media and our betters in Hollywood have been totally over the top
with fake news. Here are the facts.
article about the F-35 fighter. “An invincible
combat aircraft piloted by an operator with unprecedented situational
awareness. This is why F-35’s typically kill over 20 adversary aircraft for
every friendly loss in exercises aimed at honing pilot skills.”
Too funny for words. The

loses more from this trade war. “It is vulnerable
because it is a much poorer country with more fragile political institutions.”
An argument I have been positing along with several others and obviously a
tenet of the U.S. position. Stephen Green had an apropos comment: “Beijing has been enjoying the benefits of
free trade with the West and the domestic political fruits of an increasingly
anti-Western foreign policy. It’s time they were made to pick one.” An
interesting take from MarketWatch: The media is lying
to you about Trump’s China tariffs. “The hysteria must have a political agenda
because the amount that’s being charged is peanuts.”

state has the highest poverty rate in America? Hint-It isn’t Mississippi or West Virginia. Hint #2 – It is a one-party
state governed by clueless liberal politicians. Correct. It’s California. Words
to remember from Milton Friedman: “One of
the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather
than their results.” That’s pretty much the one sentence indictment of our
whole series of government entitlement programs going back decades. California,
with just 12% of the population has 1/3 of the nation’s welfare recipients. Economist
Robert Niskanen isn’t widely known by those outside of the sphere
of economics, but his work on bureaucracies is very pointed.
Lindsay Graham introduced
a new bill to fix the border crisis Wednesday morning. Here’s a rundown on what’s in it. At some point we need to
also address the issue of birthright citizenship. We have illegal immigrants
crossing the border literally while they’re in labor. It’s insane. President
Trump will unveil a new proposal today that is merit based
and provides for a wall. It’s time to back some people into a corner who think
open borders and sanctuary cities aren’t insane.

I’ll end with this. Someone told me to go to the
Wikipedia site and google Timeline
of Irish inventions and discoveries. I did so and it
took me a while to figure out why they directed me to it. When I did, I almost
fell on the floor laughing. See if you can figure it out. I’ll give the answer
in tomorrow’s edition.
