  • Trump’s Opponents and the Governing Class — he release of the Mueller report this week was a revelatory moment for me. I realized that, some time ago apparently, I crossed a political Mendoza line, where I am now more disgusted by Donald Trump’s opponents than I am by Trump himself.
  • Things the Media Ignored in the Mueller Report — There are countless examples of the media beclowning itself when the left’s dream of a slam-dunk against the president failed.

  • The Mueller report concludes it was not needed | TheHill — These are some of the most elite prosecutors in the country, and they went full Hamlet on a legal determination a third-year law student would knock down between Budweisers.

  • Taking the high road: William Barr handled the Mueller report with class | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette — Since his job as attorney general is to decide how or whether to act upon the findings of the special counsel, Mr. Barr explained how he and his colleagues evaluated the report and applicable law to reach their decisions.

  • France's Yellow Vest protesters return to the streets enraged by billions pledged to rebuild Notre Dame | Fox News — Many protesters are frustrated that the international effort to help Notre Dame has drawn more attention than their five-month-old Yellow Vest movement against wealth inequality...
  • Homeless shelter, looming IPOs have San Francisco on edge — Realtor John Townsend had the article on hand as he showed a 1,500-square-foot (139-square-meter) three-bedroom, one-bath condo listed at $1.15 million. He said he had double the traffic the weekend after ride-hailing company Lyft went public in March. The condo, which needed updates, sold above asking price.
  • Why Bob Kraft’s ordeal should alarm us all — It’s hard to care when a billionaire suffers abuse at the hands of our justice system. But the case of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been a travesty, and we should all pay attention.
