Each one of those statements is falsifiable--they can get tested as either
true or false. The 3rd statement is different from the other 2, in the
sense that I can't find any counter-examples to falsify it, so I'd consider
it "true". You can take any "true" statement and see how the law of
identity, "A is A", can apply to it. But you cannot start out with "A is A"
and then deduce anything useful. See the difference?

A falsifiable statement--it can get tested for being true or false..
