Robert Mueller needs to open a Twitter account NOW!!!

Robert Mueller needs to open a Twitter account NOW!!!
It’s not surprising that Robert Mueller doesn’t have a Twitter account. He likes to present himself as the strong, silent type. Somewhere between Cool Hand Luke and Walker, Texas Ranger. Sadly, the time for that shit is over. The Mueller Report is out (albeit redacted) and it’s in the public domain, more or less. Unfortunately, most... Read more »

Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?

Why did Robert Mueller fail to protect America from William Barr?
Politics in America has long ranged from theater to theater of the absurd.  The lines of what passes for “normal” though, have never been more blurred than they are now. We routinely see people previously held in high regard go off the rails in inexplicable ways. In July of 2016, James Comey held an unprecedented... Read more »

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; The Mueller Report

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; The Mueller Report
A sad truth emerging from the release of the Mueller Report is that U.S. Attorney General William Barr considers himself to be Donald Trump’s personal lawyer. Sort of a well spoken, rational version of Rudy Giuliani. It’s sad because we, the people of the United States are paying him to be our lawyer, to protect... Read more »

The Mueller Report: Top three takeaways

The Mueller Report:  Top three takeaways
I’m working my way through yesterday’s release of the Mueller Report, but I’m not a very fast reader. Even worse, I find myself staring at the opaque blocks of redactions, wondering what’s underneath. I’ll have more to say later, but there are three things in the report that every American needs to consider: 1. “The... Read more »

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; Addendum

William Barr is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath; Addendum
In an effort to keep my posts down to about 500 words, arbitrary cuts must be made.  I usually stop writing after about 700-900 words, and then the cuts begin. Last week I posted a piece entitled Is Robert Mueller the worst investigator on Earth or is William Barr a flat out liar and a traitor... Read more »

Is Robert Mueller the worst investigator on Earth or is William Barr a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath?

Is Robert Mueller the worst investigator on Earth or is William Barr a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath?
If you’re in a hurry and want to cut to the chase, I’d go with option B: The United States Attorney General is a flat out liar and a traitor to his oath. Robert Mueller is the kind of character upon which Marvel Comics could base a superhero. He’s larger than life, always going above... Read more »

The view from 30,000 feet may actually be a little closer to the ground

The view from 30,000 feet may actually be a little closer to the ground
Variations of “the view from 30,000 feet” have become a model for our dispassionate review of the news. You hear it on all the talk shows. It’s supposed to represent some grand over view of the state of our politics. In reality though, people who offer their “30,000 foot” views tend to be doing it... Read more »

In what fantasy does Andrew Lelling think that fairness has a place in America?

In what fantasy does Andrew Lelling think that fairness has a place in America?
Every parent has at one time or been forced to deal with a child’s protest of “That’s not fair.”   The go-to response is usually, “Life’s not fair, get over it.” Of all the sayings, cliches and adages we heard from our parents and repeated to our kids, that one rings as true as the Liberty...

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise

The case of Jussie Smollett shows the importance of questioning the unlikely claims of one man when FACTS prove otherwise
Like most Chicagoans (I hope), I was appalled to hear of the heinous crime perpetrated in my city as recounted by the victim, Jussie Smollet. My initial reaction was one of anger and disgust with no thought to the possibility that it was also fiction. Who would make up such a thing and for what... Read more »

Peace and legislation DEMAND a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION

Peace and legislation DEMAND a THOROUGH INVESTIGATION
On Tuesday night Donald Trump channeled Richard Nixon’s 1974 State of the Union address, both men using that platform to try to get Congress to halt investigations into their criminal activity. Nixon resigned seven months later (August 9, 1974).  There was a stark difference in the messaging of the two men, though. Nixon’s appeal was... Read more »
