Day 1: Biden lies

Althouse: "Biden's announcement video is anchored in a demonstrable lie."  "I could not finish watching that video. I tried, but I couldn't force myself. It's utterly toxic bilge.  If Biden does not come forward and retract this video and apologize and commit himself to making amends, I consider him disqualified. He does not have the character or brain power to be President."

Fake news roundup

Brietbart: "Top 51 fake news 'bombshells' the media spread."

Evergreen headline: "Social Security going broke"

Hot Air: "Social Security Will Be Unable To Pay Full Benefits By 2035."
Maya MacGuineas of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget tells the NY Times, “That fact that we now can’t guarantee full benefits to current retirees is completely unacceptable, and it should be cause enough for every policymaker to rally around solutions to restore solvency to those programs.”
This will be my less-than-yearly reminder that if Washington took incremental steps to fix this long-known problem, Americans could adjust to the changes.  But instead we'll just wait until the Titanic hits the iceberg and then scramble for the lifeboats.

Bravo, Putin, bravo

Ace: "Ohhhh: New York Times Reports That It's Very Possible the Entire Steele Dossier Was Itself Kremlin Disinformation."

Remember how we were told that Russian interference in the election was an attempt to tear America apart with Facebook ads of Satan arm-wrestling Jesus?  It turns out the real con was to dupe oh-so-willing dupes in the media to roll out this two-year charade.  Guess who got played.

Trump exonerated

Powerline: "The Mueller report: early returns"
One of the Democrats’ basic problems is that “attempting” to obstruct the investigation doesn’t make a lot of sense. If Trump had really wanted to obstruct the investigation, he could simply have terminated it. And Mueller acknowledges that the administration fully cooperated with the investigation in every way. So the “attempts to obstruct” come down to Trump expressing outrage at the fact that a baseless, partisan investigation was hampering his administration. Arguably Trump should have brought the Mueller farce to an end, but he didn’t.
