As Robert Heinlein was writing about in the 1940s, often politicians write, introduce, and even pass toothless, meaningless bills for political points. Both sides are complicit in allowing the others to do this to fool the constituents at home because they are more aligned with each other than with the voters at home. Recently, Democrats in Maine did just this with a bill about female genital mutilation (FGM) which won’t actually do anything to stop it. Yes, you can find a snopes article saying that’s not true, but Snopes is not a reliable source, particularly when it comes to things that make Democrats look bad.

Buried within a newly declassified congressional report on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections is a shocking revelation: former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper not only leaked information about the infamous Steele dossier and high-level government briefings about it to CNN, he also may have lied to Congress about the matter.” Clapper now works for CNN. And CNN knew that he leaked to them, and yet let his lies about leaking to them stand. More here.

Broward Country Deputies vote no confidence in Sheriff Israel by a huge margin (534 to 94). New report makes the Broward County police response to shooting look even worse. They were hiding behind trees while kids got shot. When a cop from another department showed up, they told him what floor the shooter was on, and let him go in while they stayed outside behind cover.
A former Feinstein staffer raised 50 million smackeroos after the 2016 election and used it to hire Fusion GPS and Steele of the infamous Dossier fame. Looks like collusion to me.

Tom Brokaw has been accused of sexual harassment by two women. He has responded with fury, and with the usual “I’m not perfect, I’ve made mistakes” which has been a hallmark of others who then turned out to be guilty. Not saying he is guilty, I don’t know. I do know it’s as hilarious as anything I’ve read this week that he claims to be stunned by ‘the free ride given a woman with a grudge…’ Look, sweety. You were part of creating this culture. It’s a weapon you and your ilk forged to use against one side, but sadly for you, it’s double-edged, and appears to function something like a boomerang flung by utter incompetents at that.
The SPLC is highly successful at self-marketing, self promotion, self aggrandizement, and enriching their own coffers. Also, they smear good people who don’t deserve it.
China using social media like Big Brother (which is why Facebook’s behavior is terrifying)

Five facts about mass shootings the media won’t be telling you.

North and South Korea- this is the most progress that has ever been made toward peaceful relations between these two countries. Trump, of course, credits himself, but so does South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
I am not sure the average American really understands what this means to Koreans: Kim Jong Un became the first North Korean leader to visit south of the demarcation line between the two Koreas, meeting with President Moon Jae-in. The leaders pledged in a joint statement to seek a formal end to the Korean War by year’s end and to rid their peninsula of nuclear weapons.
