    Russia’s effort to rig the 2014 Winter Olympics — a scheme for which the International Olympic Committee last week banned it from the 2018 winter games — bears a striking resemblance to its effort to rig the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

    On Monday, the Treasury Department released a one-page report claiming that tax cuts would pay for themselves. The document was a shameless attempt to fool the public — carefully worded to imply that economic experts at Treasury (they’re still in there somewhere, maybe locked in a closet) had actually done an analysis to that effect, without explicitly saying so. In fact, there was no economic analysis; Trump officials just made up numbers that would give them the result they wanted.

    Blackmail is a dirty business, even if it’s done for a noble cause. And these days, it’s hard to find a more noble cause than protecting the 700,000 young, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as kids and are now at risk of losing their legal protections from deportation.

    With resignations in Congress piling up and rumors that two or three dozen members could face charges of sexual misbehavior in the near future, it’s not too early to start thinking through the political impact. Could such a wave of resignations affect swing the House?

    The bumper stickers and lawn signs that quip, “This property protected by Smith &Wesson” can be a macho declaration of support for Second Amendment rights.

    Diesel exhaust fumes are the most foul tailpipe emissions on the road, as anyone stuck in traffic behind an aging bus or 18-wheeler can attest. But researchers have gathered overwhelming evidence that the fumes are more than just unpleasant; diesel emissions contribute to asthma, heart disease, cancer and a host of other ills. Diesel-powered trucks are also major contributors to lung-searing smog, and their emissions are loaded with climate-altering soot and gases that contribute to global warming.

    WASHINGTON — Thursday was Pearl Harbor Day, the anniversary of one of the deadliest attacks on American soil and perhaps the most unifying day in American history.

    Time magazine declared “silence breakers” the Person of the Year for 2017, echoing and amplifying a sense, a hunch, a flickering of a notion that many of us feel but are afraid to utter aloud, lest we curse it:

    WASHINGTON — The first use of nuclear weapons occurred Aug. 6, 1945. The second occurred three days later. That there has not been a third is testimony to the skill and sobriety of 12 presidents and many other people, here and abroad. Today, however, North Korea’s nuclear bellicosity coincides with the incontinent tweeting, rhetorical taunts and other evidence of the frivolity and instability of the 13th president of the nuclear era. His almost daily descents from the previous day’s unprecedentedly bad behavior are prompting urgent thinking about the constitutional allocation of war responsibilities, and especially about authority to use U.S. nuclear weapons.

    Brian Ross of ABC News made a colossal mistake last week, claiming then-candidate Donald Trump had instructed Michael Flynn to contact Russian officials during the campaign. In fact, Trump told him to do so only after he was elected.

    Americans probably thought President Donald Trump couldn’t get much lower than insulting the parents of a Muslim American Gold Star soldier killed in combat while serving as an Army captain in Iraq. But Trump keeps managing to dig himself deeper.
