Last week was a week of distraction from the perspective of the Trump administration. Since we have a President who is more concerned with television ratings and content than actually running a nation last week was a successful one. With all the distractions in the news there was precious little coverage of Russiagate. In reality (not the world Trump lives in) it didn’t make any difference because Robert Mueller and team kept right on quietly working like professionals do (the behavior of professionals is another concept foreign to Trump).

I didn’t take a nap on Saturday and certainly not an all day one. I am deferring comment on Charlottesville until tomorrow’s article. Today I’d like to play catchup again. One article will be inadequate to cover all the recent happenings with Trump in the White House (or whatever Trump branded property he is operating out of today). Let’s explore.

Outside the White House there is the entire right wing mythology machine including the king of them all Fox News. Let’s explore. Continue reading Trump’s Malarkey Machine

I’m inside with the air conditioning functioning perfectly so I can’t claim heat stroke as I deviate a bit from my normal writing style. Last week I wrote a “fairy tale” today I’m going to take on a somewhat biblical story. That is especially difficult for a long-time agnostic who was raised Roman Catholic, (Catholics don’t really read the Bible; the priests tell them what to believe – one of the many reasons for my exit from the Church). Enough for the background, let’s explore. Continue reading Jared Iscariot?
