It is Friday afternoon as I pen this. I needed to disclose that on two accounts. As expected, despite Mike Lindell’s proclamations to the contrary, Donald Trump was not returned to the Oval Office on Friday morning. (Who said Friday the Thirteenth was bad?) That would have no doubt been the biggest political story of last week. The situation in Afghanistan is both dynamic and of rapidly evolving, therefore some of the information contained within may be very dated by publication time.

I watched close to none of Tuesday’s Senate impeachment trial. I had better things to do. I view the trial like betting on a football game with a huge point spread.

I needed the help of a brilliant friend to come up with portmanteau.) On Thanksgiving Day, in desperate need of a distraction that he could portray as a victory, President Trump announced peace talks with the Taliban on a trip to Afghanistan. It was a scam. Let’s explore. Continue reading Afghaniscam
Today’s is the last “live blog” I will post for a few days. It is also the day (or evening to be more accurate) of the sixth and possibly deciding game of the World Series. Therefore I thought it would be a good opportunity to clean up (bad pun intended). Let’s explore. Continue reading World Series Cleanup?
