Dallas Cowboys’ Jason Garrett, Jerry Jones thumb their nose at analytics after loss

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones may have been angry with head coach Jason Garrett and his coaching staff, but there was one thing they both agreed on: not using analytics to make in-game decisions.

Analytics, which has mainly been used in baseball and basketball, has become more prevalent in the NFL over the last few years. However, Garrett and Jones both thumbed their nose at using numbers to enhance their abilities to make decisions on the field.

DALLAS COWBOYS’ JASON GARRETT REMAINING HEAD COACH THROUGH SEASON, OWNER JERRY JONES SAYS

Garrett was asked about his decision-making when the Cowboys had the ball on the New England Patriots’ 11-yard line while being down 13-6 during Sunday’s game. Dallas elected to kick a field goal to make the game 13-9, instead of trying for a touchdown. Kicking the field goal meant the team would need a touchdown to win the game, amid bad weather and against the Patriots’ stingy defense.

He explained his reasoning on 105.3 The Fan on Monday, saying there was some time left on the clock for the defense to make a stop and for the offense to get the ball back and he wanted to “make sure you give yourself an opportunity to come back the other way” with about three minutes left in the game and three timeouts remaining.

The radio hosts then asked Garrett about win probability and whether the team has information about the stat and whether they use it during the game.

“Yeah, we don’t use those stats within the game,” Garrett said, adding that it was “just not something we think is best for our team” and that “different people have different approaches.”

Jones appeared to agree with Garrett about the math during his spot on Tuesday. He said analytics were “good to know” but they don’t usually take those numbers into consideration during the game.

“I’ve had my biggest success when I’m sure analytics have said make the other decision the other way,” Jones said.

According to Pro Football Focus, kicking the field goal in that spot cost Dallas a 6 percent chance to win the game. New England eventually finished off the win, 13-9.

Rebecca Grant: Fired Navy secretary’s actions prove a ‘deep state’ anti-Trump ‘resistance’ exists at Pentagon

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6108713438001_6108711209001-vs Rebecca Grant: Fired Navy secretary’s actions prove a ‘deep state’ anti-Trump ‘resistance’ exists at Pentagon Rebecca Grant fox-news/us/military fox-news/politics/defense fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 86680a16-d4ae-5540-90c6-1809f1858cef

The resistance movements in Europe in World War II were made up of brave men and women who risked their lives to fight tyrannical Nazi occupation forces. Absurdly, political opponents of President Trump today call themselves “the resistance,” and pretend they are heroically fighting evil in the form of the president of the United States.

We’ve seen those on the left hold protest demonstrations against Trump since he was elected in a dramatic upset in 2016. And with much of the media glorifying those opposed to the president, it has become chic to be part of the anti-Trump resistance.

But that’s not OK within the executive branch of government – especially at the Pentagon, which is in charge of defending our nation.

TRUMP TEARS INTO IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY, DEFENDS MILITARY PARDONS AT FLORIDA ‘HOMECOMING RALLY’

Like it or not, Trump is our duly elected president and the commander in chief of our military. Government workers and members of the military have an obligation to do their best to help the president govern, or to resign if they oppose his policies.

More from Opinion

The latest person to fall under the spell of the anti-Trump resistance was Navy Secretary Richard Spencer. His boss, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, fired Spencer on Sunday for going outside the chain of command when Spencer disapproved of President Trump’s decision to restore the rank of Navy Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher and allow him to retire as a SEAL.

Gallagher had been demoted and the Navy was in the process of reviewing his status as a SEAL after he was acquitted of a murder charge but convicted on a lesser charge of posing with the body of an ISIS fighter in Iraq.

Esper said Trump gave him a direct order to let Gallagher retire as a SEAL. The defense secretary said Spencer sought to have the Navy disciplinary process go forward against Gallagher anyway, but secretly offered a plan to the White House to rig the process to ensure Gallagher would not lose his status as a SEAL. 

“I lost trust and confidence when I found that this secret proposal was happening,” Esper said Monday night.

Not even one bit sorry, Spencer spoke to David Martin of CBS News and said he “had to step up and do something” for the resiliency of the Navy. He complained that President Trump doesn’t understand what it means to be “a warfighter.”

Faced with a direct order, Spencer said: “I could not in my conscience do this.” CBS even got the Spencer family car on-camera pulling up to give the fired official a ride home.

Then, two Navy secretaries from the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush spoke out to bash Trump for interfering with the Navy and label his action in favor of Gallagher “contamination.”  “His values are not the military’s values,” they wrote in The New York Times.

That’s a lot of resistance. All the more shocking is that Spencer took on Trump and Esper both.

The Spencer case is sad proof there is indeed a “deep state” anti-Trump resistance phenomenon popping up within the Pentagon. Spencer felt free to act and speak out as he did because he’s surrounded by like-minded Trump skeptics, and over time it clouds judgment.

The backlash over President Trump’s Syria, Turkey and even North Korea policies provided warning signs, but when senior appointed officials develop a disdain for carrying out clear orders from the commander chief, that’s bad for the military and bad for America.

Fortunately, Esper gets it. Esper fought off a major challenge to legitimate authority, and he’ll have to keep protecting the chain of command against “resistance” groupthink.

The secretary of defense has to get the leadership team at the Pentagon back on track, and he realizes it.

“I want the SEALs and the Navy to move beyond this now and get fully focused on their warfighting mission,” Esper said Monday.

Spencer had no basis for going against Trump’s order regarding Gallagher. The Constitution gives the president the power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the nation.

Executive clemency dates back to President George Washington. Where military matters are involved, you never know who presidents may pardon or give a reduced sentence.

Washington forgave the ringleaders of the Whiskey Rebellion, who tried break Pennsylvania out of the infant Unite States. Other presidents let off pirates, killers, Confederate secessionists at the end of the Civil War, and other rebels.

Some clemencies were astonishing.

Army Master Sgt. Maurice Schick admitted he killed the 8-year old daughter of a colonel on a military base in Japan in 1954. Schick was a combat veteran of WWII campaigns in North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Europe, including the Battle of the Bulge. In 1960 President Dwight Eisenhower reduced Shick’s sentence from death to life without parole.

In 1971, President Richard Nixon (trial lawyer and World War II veteran) moved Army Lt. William Calley from prison to house arrest after only three days behind bars while Calley appealed his conviction and life prison sentence in the 1968 My Lai massacre in South Vietnam, in which several hundred South Vietnamese civilians were killed. Calley was later paroled after serving three years under house arrest.

President Gerald Ford famously pardoned Nixon after Nixon resigned as president following the Watergate scandal. Ford also gave back citizenship to Confederate General Robert E. Lee and even pardoned the woman known as Tokyo Rose, the World War II propaganda broadcaster convicted of treason.

President Obama used his power to take double-murderer Pfc. Dwight Loving off death row. Obama pardoned Army Spec. Chelsea Manning, erasing a serious espionage conviction. Obama also swapped five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo to get deserter Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl back from Afghanistan.

The list goes on. Some are easy to grasp, others aren’t. But unless the Constitution is amended, the president has the power to pardon.

Executive clemency allows the president to show compassion or forgiveness. That’s a heavy responsibility, and history shows presidents use it repeatedly.

This power is one we ordinary citizens may never fully understand. And while we won’t all agree on the clemency decisions by our presidents, we should always respect them, as our Constitution intended.

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Devlin Hodges chided for old tweets supporting Trump

The Pittsburgh Steelers will start Devlin Hodges, who made waves earlier this season with his outspoken support of President Trump, at quarterback Sunday as they take on the Cleveland Browns, more than two weeks after a helmet-swinging melee that shook the NFL, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday.

It will be Hodges’ second career start. He started earlier this season for the injured Mason Rudolph in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers on the road. Hodges and the Steelers picked up the win in that game behind the rookie’s 132 passing yards and one touchdown pass.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS BENCH MASON RUDOLPH AHEAD OF REMATCH WITH CLEVELAND BROWNS WEEKS AFTER FIGHT

While Hodges may have been ecstatic about getting the start, he quickly became the target of social media trolls who resurfaced his past tweets – mostly about President Trump. The Samford product was caught deleting the tweets about Trump, but Twitter users saved the receipts.

Hodges was subsequently lambasted for his support of the president.

The first-year player the latest target over his support for Trump.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS’ MASON RUDOLPH DENIES RACIAL-SLUR ALLEGATION AFTER GETTING BENCHED IN WIN

Earlier this year, rookie defensive end Nick Bosa was chided over his tweets about Trump and his opinions on Colin Kaepernick. The San Francisco 49ers ended up drafting him and team president Al Guido said the tweets had no impact on the team selecting him with the No. 2 pick of the draft.

Rudolph was also hit earlier this year for his apparent support for Trump.

Hodges is not an outspoken quarterback and its unclear whether the criticism online will end up rattling him. He is walking into a big game this weekend against a division rival. The Steelers are 6-5 this season and are in contention for an AFC playoff spot.

Sixteen of the 39 migrants found dead in UK truck repatriated to Vietnam amid human trafficking investigation

The bodies of sixteen of the 39 migrants found dead in the back of a refrigerated truck in the United Kingdom last month were repatriated to Vietnam early Wednesday and returned to next of kin, according to reports.

TRUCK DRIVER PLEADS GUILTY TO IMMIGRATION CHARGE IN CASE OF UK SMUGGLING DEATHS

This comes as officials in the UK and Vietnam continue to investigate an international human trafficking ring after eight women and 31 males, including two boys both aged 15, were found dead in the back of a truck in Essex on Oct. 23. All 39 were later identified as Vietnam nationals.

The remains of sixteen of the migrants arrived in Hanoi’s Noi Bai Airport early Wednesday and were transported by ambulances to their family’s homes in the Nghe An, Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces, according to Sky News.

“After waiting for so many days, my son has finally arrived,” Nguyen Dinh Gia, father of victim Nguyen Dinh Luong, told Reuters in a phone interview from his home in Can Loc, Ha Tinh province. “We are deeply saddened, but we have to hold back the emotion to organize the funeral for my son.”

UK and Vietnamese officially are working to repatriate the remaining victims in the near future.

“This is a very difficult time,” British ambassador to Vietnam, Gareth Ward, said in a video statement released on Wednesday. “I promise the families and the Vietnamese people as a whole that we will continue to boost the cooperation between the UK and Vietnam to prevent human trafficking and protect vulnerable people here.”

Each body will cost about $2,856 to repatriate, according to the vice minister of foreign affairs. The Vietnamese government will advance the payment and the victims’ families will be required to pay back the cost of to fly the bodies in from the UK at a later date. A crowdsourcing campaign has raised more than $110,000 for the relatives of the deceased migrants, BBC reported.

The minister added in a statement that families were encouraged to have the bodies cremated “to ensure speed, low cost and sanitation safety.” Many relative instead agreed to pay to have the bodies shipped back to Vietnam for traditional burials given cremation is rare in the country’s rural areas, The Guardian reported.

On Monday, Maurice “Mo” Robinson, 25, of Craigavon in Northern Ireland, pleaded guilty to conspiring with others to assist illegal immigration. He admitted to driving the truck where the bodies were found. Robinson told the court he conspired with others from May 1, 2018, to Oct. 24, 2019 to assist unlawful immigration and acquired cash that he knew or suspected came from criminal conduct, Reuters reported.

On Sunday, the Essex police said Christopher Kennedy, 23, also of Northern Ireland, had been arrested in connection with the investigation. He was charged with conspiracy to arrange people trafficking and conspiracy to break U.K. immigration law. A third suspect was being held in Ireland. Two other suspects from Northern Ireland, brothers Ronan and Christopher Hughes, were being sought, the New York Times reported.

Police in Vietnam have arrested 10 people in connection with the deaths.

Patrick Schwarzenegger on family’s new blended Thanksgiving plans with Chris Pratt and sister Katherine

Patrick Schwarzenegger has a large family and it keeps growing.

The actor, 26, opened up about their plans for Thanksgiving while attending Sunday’s American Music Awards and admitted he and new brother-in-law, Chris Pratt, love hitting the dessert table.

“He can eat a lot,” Schwarzenegger told Entertainment Tonight of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star. “Me and Chris go at it at the desserts. He’s a foodie. We both have the sweet tooth.”

CHRIS PRATT GUSHES OVER MARRIED LIFE WITH KATHERINE SCHWARZENEGGER

Schwarzenegger added that his mother, Maria Shriver, cooks and hosts the big dinner which also includes her other children with ex-husband Arnold Schwarzenegger — Katherine, 29, Christina, 28, and Chris, 22.

“Thanksgiving at our place is great,” he said of the holiday. “On Wednesday, we always go to the church and do, like, a Thanksgiving meal there for people, and then Thursday, we’ll do Thanksgiving at my mom’s.”

“We always do a football game in the morning, and then come back and eat all day, watch football like everybody else,” he added.

MARIA SHRIVER SAYS POLITICS ARE OK AT HER FAMILY’S THANKSGIVING DINNER TABLE

Pratt married Katherine on June 8 at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif. and then honeymooned in Hawaii.

He was previously married to actress Anna Faris from 2009 to 2018. The former couple share one son together — Jack, 7.

In a recent post on social media, Katherine opened up about why she’s “thankful” for her husband this year.

KATHERINE SCHWARZENEGGER PRAISES CHRIS PRATT’S EX, ANNA FARIS, OVER SUCCESSFUL PODCAST

“Coming up on Thanksgiving week and feeling so thankful and excited to be with my family and loved ones,” she wrote on Instagram on Saturday. “I know this week comes with a lot of mixed feelings for people about returning home, traveling and missing loved ones. Everyone needs a little extra love as they navigate their way through this time.”

She suggested to her fans that each person “start thinking each day for something or someone you’re thankful for, and tell them.”

She continued: “Today, I am grateful for this bike ride with my wonderful husband and seeing the colors of the fall leaves. While we were riding our bikes, he said let’s give out real honest compliments to people we pass and see what happens.

“This also reminded me how thankful I am to be married to someone who thinks of kind ways to make the world a better place,” Schwarzenegger concluded.

In May, Schwarzenegger told Fox News her relationship with Pratt is “amazing.”

“I think anyone who finds the person that they get to spend the rest of their life with… it’s a huge gift and a huge blessing, so I feel really lucky,” she shared.

David Bossie: Trump impeachment evidence doesn’t exist – But Democrats keep looking

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6109371908001_6109369918001-vs David Bossie: Trump impeachment evidence doesn’t exist – But Democrats keep looking fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc David Bossie article 95a1f6b4-39a9-5eaa-a3d0-815334f85cc6

Witch hunts never end, because there are no witches. So the hunt for these non-existent beings goes on and on and on … just as the hunt by desperate House Democrats for non-existent evidence of impeachable conduct by President Trump goes on and on.

After two weeks of hearings by the House Intelligence Committee that failed to show President Trump has done anything to justify his impeachment, the House Judiciary Committee announced Tuesday that it will hold yet another impeachment hearing Dec. 4.

Democrats are determined to keep looking for something – anything – to strengthen their absurd impeachment case against the president.

TOP DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST PLEADS WITH PARTY TO ABANDON IMPEACHMENT

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York – a highly partisan Democrat who’s been suffering from a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome for years – has made it clear that he is determined to impeach Trump despite the lack of evidence.

More from Opinion

Nadler even invited the president and his counsel to participate in what promises to be a kangaroo court proceeding, focused on proving why Trump should be impeached. Trump can expect as much fairness out of this proceeding as a political prisoner in the old Soviet Union would get in a show-trial.

It was Nadler’s committee that was thoroughly embarrassed by former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in a failed attempt by committee Democrats at an impeachment hearing in September.

Democrats know the Senate will not convict Trump and remove him from office after a trial, because the Democrats would need the support of at least 20 Republican senators for such an unprecedented action. So the goal of House Democrats is to throw every accusation they can think of at the president – no matter how absurd – with the hope that this will make him easier to defeat him in the election one year from now

But the American people are smarter than Democrats give them credit for. So the impeachment-obsessed Democrats are making no progress in convincing voters that the president should be kicked out of office.

Many polls are indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, both California Democrats, have failed to convince the American people that the allegations surrounding a routine phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky rise to the level of an impeachable offense.

In fact, as people across the country hear the scant evidence and observe how the Democrats are conducting the investigation to suit their misleading narrative and political needs, public support is moving in the opposite direction from what Democrats want.

While each party’s base of support is unlikely to change its position on impeachment, critically important independent voters – as well as voters in two top presidential battleground states – are showing signs of souring on the impeachment-hungry Democrats.

According to FiveThirtyEight averages of polls, independent support for impeachment has trailed off by more than six points over the past month.

Emerson has found an even more dramatic swing, according to recent polling. The well-respected poll reported:  “The biggest swing is among Independents, who oppose impeachment now 49 percent to 34 percent, which is a reversal from October where they supported impeachment 48 percent to 39 percent.”

Meanwhile, in the Rust Belt states of Wisconsin and Michigan – which provided the electoral votes that helped elect Donald Trump president – support for impeachment is upside down and the similarity in the numbers is noteworthy.

According to a recent Marquette University survey, impeachment is only supported by 40 percent of Wisconsinites, with 53 percent opposed.

And in neighboring Michigan, I commissioned a poll late last week that found only 40 percent supporting impeachment as well, with 45 percent in opposition. These bad numbers for Democrats are no coincidence; the public is dubious of this politicized impeachment effort – and with good reason.

Recent history has taught us that high-stakes impeachment investigations that are seen as partisan and heavy-handed can backfire on the accusers. In 1998, Republicans failed to win over the public in favor of removing President Bill Clinton from office but decided to move forward with impeachment at their own peril. Voters went on to reward Democrats during the midterm elections that year with a five-seat pickup in the House.

The stigma of partisanship is destroying the Democrats’ drive to impeach in 2019 as well. Rep. Schiff’s inability to tell the truth, his secret deposition dungeon in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, and his refusal to allow Republican witnesses is taking its toll.

The American people understand fairness, due process, and the presumption of innocence – and they know this investigation lacks those honorable attributes. They are instead witnessing an illegitimate political witch hunt to take down the duly elected president of the United States – something commonsense American taxpayers won’t stand for.

If Pelosi and Schiff decide to ignore data and public sentiment and plow forward with a vote on articles of impeachment and get the support of 218 House members, the process would then move to the Senate for a trial

But in order to get to 218 votes in the House, many of the Democrats representing districts carried by Trump in 2016 would be putting their seats on the line by voting yes. I’m currently running “Stop Impeachment” ads in five of those districts to put pressure on these vulnerable Democrats.

If an article of impeachment gets to the Senate, the Republican majority will endeavor to operate under a much different process than the Trump-hating radicals in the House. First and foremost, President Trump would be allowed legal representation and would be able to defend himself against the false charges being lobbed by Schiff and company.

President Trump would also be able to call his own witnesses. It’s logical to believe that many of the same individuals that House Democrats declined to allow would then have to testify before the Senate.

Here’s a hypothetical witness list that would provide for a much more balanced experience than Schiff’s one-sided kangaroo court:

Hunter Biden should be called to testify so the American people can learn about the alleged quid pro quo involving his father – former Vice President Joe Biden – and the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor in exchange for foreign aid.

The anonymous whistleblower should testify about his political allegiances and motivations, his anti-Trump bias, and his relationship with Schiff and members of Schiff’s staff. He should also answer questions about the Obama administration’s anti-Trump activities involving Russia and Ukraine.

Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson should be called in to discuss why he viewed the whistleblower’s story as an “urgent concern” if Schiff doesn’t think it’s important enough to have the whistleblower testify. The public also has a right to know if Atkinson had any role with the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications when he served in the National Security Division at the Department of Justice.

Former Democratic National Committee Contractor Alexandra Chalupa should come in to answer questions under oath about her dealings with Ukrainians to dig up dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump and his campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

Schiff himself should be called as a witness. Schiff must answer questions about his false statements made to the public and everything he knew about the whistleblower’s complaint and when he knew it.

Testimony from these individuals in a potential impeachment trial in the Senate next year would blow a gaping hole in the Democrats’ already weak case for impeachment.

For Nancy Pelosi, a word of caution: polls supporting President Trump’s impeachment won’t get any better; in fact, they’ll only get worse. Your attack dog Schiff failed to make the case – but there’s still time to change direction and focus on policy issues that the American people care about.

Wounded warrior ‘Joey’ Jones: This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for America – And a superpower we all have

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093403353001_6093402739001-vs Wounded warrior 'Joey' Jones: This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for America – And a superpower we all have Johnny

In a country as young as ours, few uniquely American holidays and traditions are as old and cemented in American culture as Thanksgiving.

First experienced over 100 years before we even became a country, it’s also fitting that this day to give thanks for our blessings was first acknowledged by President George Washington and made a federal holiday by President Abraham Lincoln.

These two most important leaders of our country understood the fundamental need to set aside aspirations, frustrations, dreams and ill-will to celebrate one another. Perhaps Washington and Lincoln themselves saw how fragile a free country can be, especially in time of war.

JOHNNY ‘JOEY’ JONES: CELEBRATE BAGHDADI’S DEATH — AND AMERICA’S RESOLVE TO FIGHT TERROR

Having deployed to Iraq and again to Afghanistan as a Marine, I’ve seen what sacrifice means in the cause of preserving our freedom.

More from Opinion

I’ve lost dozens of friends and I’ve lost much of my own body – giving up my legs above the knee and severely injuring my right forearm and both wrists when I was wounded in Afghanistan by an improvised explosive device in 2010.

Yet I have so much to be thankful for. Pain and adversity are constants in our lives. Diseases, bankruptcy, death, missed opportunities and broken hearts are some of the hardships we share by simply being human and alive.

As much as life throws at us there are a few things that remain true.

First, life is for the living. We owe it to those we’ve lost and those who will survive us to live and live well. To make a positive impact on those around us, and to carry the burdens we have with dignity and grace.

Second, perspective is key. It wasn’t my choice to have prosthetic legs to stand on, but the choice to stand again was 100 percent my choice.

We can’t control the cards we’re dealt or even the situations we find ourselves in, but we can control how we respond. We have the ability to focus on what we can control to overcome the things we can’t.

Third, we have a superpower. We have the power to change lives by simply telling others what they need to hear, when they need to hear it. Sometimes the person you need to talk to is the person facing you in the mirror. If you let them, people will help you. Don’t miss an opportunity to help them.

People will look at me and ask: “How do you stay so positive after you lost your legs?” And I’ll stare them back in the eyes and say “Well, I don’t know how you stay negative. You have yours.”

I’m thankful for so much in my life, perhaps first and foremost the fact I was born in a free and compassionate society. A country so brave it will stand up to the world’s villains, and so benevolent that the ruling power belongs to its citizens. Government serves the people in America – not the other way around.

This Thanksgiving I hope each of you reading this has many things to celebrate and be thankful for. But don’t forget to celebrate all of us – the American people.

If Memorial Day reminds us the cost of freedom, and Independence Day reminds us the struggle to obtain it, let Thanksgiving remind us why. Live your life and live it well. Happy Thanksgiving America. I’m thankful for you.

Pick your probe: the mirror-image world of Trump investigations

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6108793256001_6108795363001-vs Pick your probe: the mirror-image world of Trump investigations Howard Kurtz fox-news/columns/media-buzz fox news fnc/media fnc d51a43e9-5cd4-52e0-8416-c0cf2eff1eab article

The sense of living in parallel universes is spreading.

Everyone knows that the media seem permanently divided into two camps with mirror-image views of Donald Trump, the Democrats, Ukraine and impeachment. They may even differ on Conan the dog.

But now the panoply of investigations also appears to dwell in dueling realities. Partisans can pick their preferred probe and dismiss the others. The same is true for polls.

The investigation that gets the most ink and airtime, needless to say, is the House impeachment inquiry. And that’s been subjected to endless debate about whether the Dems are treating the Republicans unfairly and the reliability of the witnesses—not to mention Trump’s demand that Adam Schiff be forced to testify at a Senate trial.

BLOOMBERG NEWS PUNTS ON CANDIDATE BLOOMBERG AND DEMS, BUT NOT TRUMP

And that’s the point—if you don’t like the House proceedings, you focus on a Senate impeachment trial (if there is one) run by the GOP.

But many Trump supporters are more focused on an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general, with a report due early next month. That examines the FBI’s handling of the beginning of the Russia probe, which has long been a fixation for some on the right, fueled by the president’s constant insistence that his campaign was targeted for illegal spying.

Based on leaks to the Washington Post and New York Times, IG Michael Horowitz appears ready to deliver a mixed verdict. The probe is reported to have found “sloppy and unprofessional” conduct by some of those involved at the tail end of the Obama administration. The FBI is said to have forced out a low-level lawyer who disliked Trump—and who improperly altered a document related to the FISA surveillance request for Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

But the other universe is represented by the IG’s overall finding that the FBI was justified in opening a counterintelligence investigation and that it was not tainted by political bias on the part of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe or Peter Strzok (three major Trump targets).

And for those who aren’t happy with that investigation, there’s another universe over here with a parallel inquiry. John Durham, a U.S. attorney, was assigned by William Barr to review the origins of the Russia probe, and that has now been elevated to a criminal investigation.

The courts are another arena where you can select your favorite litigation.

In one case, U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson ruled that ex-White House counsel Don McGahn must testify in the House impeachment. In a ruling that will excite Trump critics, the judge said that “presidents are not kings. They do not have subjects, bound by loyalty or blood, whose destiny they are entitled to control.” (The decision is being appealed.)

That prompted the president to tweet Tuesday that he wishes McGahn, and John Bolton (“a patriot”), could testify. “I would love to have Mike Pompeo, Rick Perry, Mick Mulvaney and many others testify about the phony Impeachment Hoax. It is a Democrat Scam.” The problem, Trump says, is he wants to protect the rights of future presidents.

But if you prefer, Trump just won a tactical victory in another case. The Supreme Court blocked a House committee from getting access to Trump’s financial records. That, in turn, involves another parallel universe—a blatant end run in which the Manhattan DA’s office is seeking Trump’s tax returns after Congress couldn’t get them at the federal level.

Finally, there’s the game of pick-your-own-polls.

The president declared the other day: “Support for impeachment is dropping like a rock, down into the 20s in some Polls.”

Except no one could find such a poll. In fact, in a CNN poll Tuesday that’s in line with recent surveys, 50 percent support impeachment and removal, and 43 percent do not. About the best that can be said is that the House hearings don’t seem to have boosted support for impeachment.

But hey, if you’re not wild about this poll, just wait until one more to your liking comes along.
