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 »

Maybe there's no collusion, but there's plenty of conspiracy

Maybe there's no collusion, but there's plenty of conspiracy
The following was previously published.  It’s a little cheesy re-posting it, but not nearly as cheesy as Donald Trump’s constant refrain of, “No collusion, no collusion, no collusion.”  For every ten times Dishonest Don says, “No collusion,” someone needs to stand up and say, “But your son says you get all your money from Russia...

James Comey has a "Higher Loyalty," but so does Scott Pruitt

James Comey has a "Higher Loyalty," but so does Scott Pruitt
I’ve written some criticisms of James Comey, including, “James Comey May Be a Boy Scout, But Sometimes He Acts Like a Girl Scout” and “Was James Comey Working for the Russians or for Donald Trump?” I’ve been tough on the former FBI director since his inexplicable July 5, 2016 press conference.  You can read Comey’s remarks...

There is No Collusion, There is No Collusion, There is No Collusion. Except That There Is

There is No Collusion, There is No Collusion, There is No Collusion.  Except That There Is
Dishonest Don can say, “There is no collusion” as many times as he wants, but it doesn’t make it any more true. It only makes it that much less believable. How many times has he said, “I’m like, really smart” when all evidence points only to staggering and disturbing ignorance? If you agree with the... Read more »

It's Pretty Clear that Russia's Meddling Went a Long Way to get Donald Trump Elected

It's Pretty Clear that Russia's Meddling Went a Long Way to get Donald Trump Elected
Bill Maher has an occasional segment on his show, Real Time entitled “I don’t know it for a fact, I just know it’s true.” I don’t know it for a fact, but Russia’s responsibility for the election of Donald Trump is something that I just know is true. Despite Trump’s claim of a landslide victory,... Read more »

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray

If You Don't Think Donald J. Trump Is a Jackass, Please Stand Up and Bray
It may be rude to say that Donald J. Trump is a jackass, but that is an unavoidable conclusion.  I apologize to anyone offended by that image, but it may be the least offensive noun I have to offer. It’s not that his lies, big and small are legendary.  And stupid.  Most times they contradict... Read more »

James Comey May Be a Boy Scout, But He Sure Acts Like a Girl Scout Sometimes

James Comey May Be a Boy Scout, But He Sure Acts Like a Girl Scout Sometimes
I couldn’t believe what I was watching last July as James Comey delivered his now infamous address to the nation.  It was, at the very least, unprecedented.  His October surprise solidified his place in FBI lore, but not in a good way.  Comey was a problematic FBI director, but the timing of his firing suggests...

James Comey May Be a Boy Scout, But Sometimes He Acts Like a Girl Scout

James Comey May Be a Boy Scout, But Sometimes He Acts Like a Girl Scout
Originally posted on October 30, 2016: James Comey has been called a “Boy Scout” by those who seem to think that he is above reproach.  Maybe the Boy Scout thing refers to his self-righteous TV persona or it could just be that haircut. In any case, I find his behavior more closely aligned with Girl... Read more »

Was James Comey Working for the Russians or for Donald Trump?

Was James Comey Working for the Russians or for Donald Trump?
FBI Director James Comey may have exhibited nothing more than poor judgement in the latter half of 2016. He may also have found himself in the midst of circumstances exceeding his ability to act in a reasonable manner. After watching two seasons of House of Cards however, I have greater qualms about politicians than ever... Read more »
