Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?

Will Robert Mueller defend America or show up in a MAGA hat?
Back in May, I wrote a piece entitled, Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?  Repercussions of that failure have been rippling across this country like aftershocks of a 7.0 earthquake. Mueller may have finished his report and handed it to his boss, as is required of a special counsel, but... Read more »

The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world

The subtext of Trump's nativist, xenophobic, counterfactual tweets should rock your world
According to Fox’s Brit Hume, Trump’s ‘go back’ comments were nativist, xenophobic, counterfactul (sic) and politically stupid.   Hume apparently uses the word counterfactual when he means lying. He also says that Trump’s comments simply do not meet the standard definition of racist.  He may have his own definition of standard definition. Any unbiased observer would be... Read more »

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over

Trumpsters dig in as the swamp runneth over
Just about everything Trump is ridiculous and not in a funny way.  He speaks like a child, demands apologies after insulting people and his lack of historic reference is spellbinding. Revolutionary soldiers taking airports? Trump ran on a promise to “drain the swamp,” but instead has turned Washington into a toxic mix of nepotism, cronyism,... Read more »

The Independence Day atrocity that is Donald J. Trump

The Independence Day atrocity that is Donald J. Trump
Warning:  Donald J. Trump is stealing America’s celebration from YOU! Happy Birthday, America! If you’re wondering what the Fourth of July is all about, today marks the 243rd anniversary of the publication of the Declaration of Independence. The Continental Congress (a congress that did things) declared independence on July 2, 1776, but the American Revolution... Read more »

You can't have an opinion about a report you haven't read, so please shut the hell up and read it

You can't have an opinion about a report you haven't read, so please shut the hell up and read it
I cringe when I see Fox’s Sean Hannity rant the Trump line of “no collusion, no obstruction, complete exoneration…..yada, yada, yada.” Hannity is either a liar, an idiot or he never read the Mueller Report.  The three are not mutually exclusive. Worse is the mischaracterization and outright lies about the report perpetrated by a partisan,... Read more »

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?

Is Nancy Pelosi undermining the rule of law and setting the table for a President Ivanka?
I was once a proud Democrat and greatly admired Nancy Pelosi.  I’m still a Democrat, but the sheen has tarnished and Speaker Pelosi often leaves me gritting my teeth. No one on Law & Order ever said, “We’ve got a ton of evidence that this guy killed his wife, but we’ve got to be methodical.”... Read more »

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not

The Confederate flag is racist, Black History Month is not
If you find the message in the above featured image offensive, you are not alone. In fact, I’m flabbergasted that this is a commonly held belief. Even if it’s not a commonly held belief, it is certainly a commonly repeated fabrication. The logic of the whole reverse racism thing is almost enough to make me... Read more »

"Attorney General" William Barr is the new Michael Cohen

"Attorney General" William Barr is the new Michael Cohen
Note: “Attorney General” appears in quotation marks in the above title because it is a nominal position for Mr. Barr.  He is no more the Attorney General of the United States than I am the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Michael Cohen was Donald Trump’s fixer.  That is an undeniable fact, no matter... Read more »

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and he is the underdog: Interesting responses

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and he is the underdog:  Interesting responses
Some interesting responses appeared in my inbox after I posted a blog entitled, Trump’s ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog. Go figure!  Insults and death wishes don’t bother me (much), but I had a hard time wrapping my head around the barrage of misinformation assaulting me. Then, while... Read more »

Excerpt from my letter to Robert S. Mueller III

Excerpt from my letter to Robert S. Mueller III
Dear Bob, We asked for clarity, but all we got was ambiguity and a situation like the great blues player, Muddy Waters. Clearly, there were millions of folks out here hoping that you were going to finish up by handing Trump a GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL card. I admit that such a scenario crept into my... Read more »
