Did Robert Mueller sell out his country or were we just victims of his hubris?

Did Robert Mueller sell out his country or were we just victims of his hubris?
Robert Mueller’s perpetual refrain following the release of his highly anticipated report was that the report speaks for itself. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never heard a stack of paper utter a single word. Even if Mueller’s report was somehow imbued with magical powers and could actually speak, no one would have heard...

Making the case for Moscow Mitch's immediate (disappearance)

Making the case for Moscow Mitch's immediate (disappearance)
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is the quintessential crook and he wears it like a badge of honor. He is everything you loathe about corrupt politicians and more. We can make this case anywhere along the course of Mitch’s career, but let’s start in January 2009, when he announced that his sole purpose for the following four years... Read more »

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency

Don't let a chant of "Lock him up" lead you to a false equivalency
On Halloween I posted a piece entitled, To lock him up or not to lock him up, that is the question for Joe and Mika.  I got some very spooky responses. Now that I’ve gotten all the makeup off my face, I can see that upon deeper reflection, there’s a little more to it than... Read more »

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 »

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 »

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 »
