  • Sometimes conspiracy theories turn out to be true. Like the one that said Broward county cops were deliberately letting juveniles like the Parkland murderer off the hook.

  • Don’t even bother trying the “too irrational to be a terrorist” defense.

  • Who’s behind the Trump dossier that the FBI relied on? Oh, this gets so thick and deep I can’t even go there. But it does help explain why the left — which has always rightly distrusted the FBI — is suddenly in love with its historic nemesis. (H/T DBH) 14 Comments
