Only Somewhat Out Of Sight

Some years ago, Hillary Clinton was ridiculed when she said there was a vast right wing conspiracy. Today she is proven to be substantially correct. There is a vast far right wing conspiracy, including in America, and it is pretty much hiding in plain sight.

Surprise. A Potpourri Thursday

It is Tuesday afternoon as I begin to write this. I am willing to bet a lot of you expected to see a piece dealing with Robert Mueller’s testimony on Capitol Hill. So many strange things happen in Washington these days that even at this late hour I wasn’t completely convinced that Mueller would testify or that his testimony would warrant a column. (We all know the answers to those questions by this reading.) With that in mind and wanting to clear most of Wednesday to watch what I hope will be Mueller’s testimony I decided to do another catch up/potpourri article. Let’s explore. Continue reading Surprise.

We Don’t Know Yet, But…

It’s Saturday morning as I pen this and the news media is filled with speculation portrayed as reporting on the Mueller Report. The reality is that we know precious little about it. The media became aware of its being delivered to Attorney General Bill Barr about 5pm Friday which they erroneously keep reporting that it dropped. If you follow the few facts we know it actually dropped a bit earlier in the day. I strongly feel that one way or another we will know most everything contained in the report with the possible exception of classified material (which may or may not be in there) and possibly grand jury testimony that functions as supporting documentation. But there were many other things that occurred lately that I haven’t touched on. Let’s explore some of them in the following paragraphs while we wait for the Mueller report to begin to leak/be made public. Continue reading We Don’t Know Yet, But…

Relating

“I can relate.” That was President Trump’s answer to a reporter’s January 6th question, “Mr. President, can you relate to the pain of federal workers who can’t pay their bills.” As the Trump Shutdown 3.0 enters one month territory and the nation remembers the contributions of the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I’d like to explore the validity of that remark. Please come along. Continue reading Relating

America Can Do Better Than Brett Kavanaugh

I was and remain opposed to Donald Trump being able to nominate any person to serve on the Supreme Court until and unless the cloud over his presidency is lifted. That was my original opposition to the Kavanaugh nomination. Today it goes much, much deeper. It is no longer theoretical; it is personal. Let’s explore.
