"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 »

Mueller's comments, for your convenience

Mueller's comments, for your convenience
On Wednesday, May 29, Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a surprise appearance behind a Department of Justice podium to comment on the report his office released to the Attorney General. Realizing that few people got to see Mueller’s appearance and fewer still will read the 448 page report, I decided to put out the transcript... Read more »

Trump's ratings are at an all time high and yet, he is the underdog.  Go figure!
Vanity Fair’s recent article, “Donald Trump May Be One of the Biggest Losers in America” drew the following comment from Trump supporter, Lily C. of Naperville, IL: “And Trump’s ratings are at an all time high… Boy oh boy how Americans love the underdog, so keep on going after the President and he’ll win 2020...

Memorial Day 2020: Will the words "Honor and Remember" mean anything at all?

Memorial Day 2020:  Will the words "Honor and Remember" mean anything at all?
Next year will be the last Memorial Day before the 2020 elections and I fear the meaning of that remembrance will have been banished into obscurity by then. I publish a Memorial Day post every year, making small changes to one I originally posted in 2013. You can read that by clicking HERE. The tag... Read more »

Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day 2019
Following originally posted on Memorial Day, 2013: About a decade before I was born, 2,400 American men and women lost their lives in the attack on Pearl Harbor, drawing us into World War II.  By the end of the war that number would exceed 400,000. Veterans Day is a tribute to all who have served... Read more »

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 »
