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 »

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...

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 »

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
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 »

Would you rather see Mitch McConnell shot, hanged or beheaded?

Would you rather see Mitch McConnell shot, hanged or beheaded?
Let’s assume that Mitch McConnell is tried and convicted of being an enemy of democracy and a traitor to this country and the Constitution. It’s not much of a leap. McConnell has committed any number of atrocities worthy of death.  We have to rule out torture though, as it violates the whole “cruel and unusual”... 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 »
