Canadian Omen

Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s 1974 hit You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, written by Canadian Randy Bachman, keeps going through my mind this morning. I’m thinking of Trump and 1/6; certainly not grammar. I base almost all of my writing on fact; today it’s gut.

I don’t know where the adage originated. For my generation it came out of Watergate. The coverup is always worse than the crime. I can’t think of too many things worse than killing police officers in an attempt to overthrow American democracy but this coverup keeps revealing itself and it stinks.

I’m not going to get into the facts surrounding what increasingly looks like a coverup involving the Secret Service and several other government agencies. It seems like we are dealing with daily new revelations and whatever I wrote today may well be contradicted or at least supplemented by publishing let alone by the time you got around to reading this piece.

It also appears there were at least attempts by Trump and his minions to subvert the Department of Defense among others. There are still the “coincidences” of the IRS audits of FBI people Trump fired. Add Treasury to the list of suspects.

The 1/6 Committee has already supplied plenty of fodder for the theory that Trump coordinated – probably through the wannabes (i.e. Rudy) around him – with domestic terrorists.

If we go back to the 2016 campaign is conspiracy with Russia all that unbelievable? In my mind both groups were trying to cheat the other and their actions were in their mutual interest.

I am not among those who feel the Justice Department is sitting on its hands. Most likely it is working below the radar until it indicts. The 1/6 Committee is obviously not taking August off. I expect news/leaks throughout the month and the “fall season” will be must see TV.

I’ve been saying it for years now: the best way to analyze the Trump era is to view it as an organized criminal enterprise.

Until tomorrow I’ll just “roll on down the highway” and wait for more news. Thanks Randy.
