Where’s the Response?

The January 6th Committee has released its findings with referrals for criminal charges and not a sound from the man identified as a criminal. Why so quiet? (You read that with Heath Ledger’s Joker voice, didn’t you)



(NYT) Former President Donald J. Trump said on Monday that the F.B.I. had searched his Palm Beach, Fla., home and had broken open a safe — an account that, if accurate, would be a dramatic escalation in the various investigations into the former president.

I don’t think Nixon experienced a raid during Watergate.

Speaking of which, isn’t today the 48th Anniversary of Nixon’s resignation?


I think not! *

However, for all you professional and amateur conspiracy theorists – have at it!

* Troll prophylactic: Sarcasm!

What Op-Ed?

Here’s the thing. I haven’t come across this currently famous anonymous senior official op-ed. Seriously. On Facebook I’ve had a ton of posts from people making snide comments about the op-ed. I’ve seen thoughtful opinions about it. I’ve even seen the occasional re-posting of Trump’s twitter responses. But I have yet to come across a post with a link to the actual op-ed. Usually I get a ton of posts to the articles. But not this time. Weird.

And no, I haven’t done a search for the op-ed in question. I ain’t that desperate to read it. Though maybe I should.


Did they take his phone away from him?

If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 22, 2018

That’s pretty tame for him.


Did I miss it? Did I miss the twitter melt down? Has it happened?

Just asking for a friend.

Who has popcorn.

Old Navy Joke

I heard a joke in the Navy: A detail of Marines is marching along at the San Diego Naval base. Suddenly a sailor appears on top of a hill nearby and starts screaming obscenities and insults at them. The detail’s commander send a Marine to take care of him. They disappear behind the hill. After a moment the sailor appears and resume the obscenities and insults. This time two Marines are sent. The sailor and the marines disappear behind the hill. This time there are blood curdling screams and then silence. Then, the sailor once again appears and resumes his behavior. This time three Marines are sent. The same thing. Blood curdling screams followed by silence. However, this time a Marine crawls up onto the hill and yells “It’s a trap! There are two of them!”
Hardi Har Har. I know. Totally not realistic.

Well, it’s now 2017. The Marine is Mueller. He is sent. He and the sailor disappear behind the hill. There are blood curdling screams. Silence. And then Mueller reappears without a scratch and returns to the detail. “That was quick.” The commander says. “Yeah, I know. There were only 15 of them.”

Totally realistic.

If you think Mueller is going for Jared and the sons, you are sorely mistaken. Mueller is going for Trump. THAT is the end game for him.

When it Rains

It pours? I mean…… WOW! Hell of an opening act.

Let’s get something straight – despite the soon to be pearl-clutching Trump supporters claims otherwise – this is no small fry. He was the Chairman of Trumps campaign. On top of that, another man also arrested. And a third pleading guilty in another court? Much more than I expected. And I expected more than small fry, but not this big. Not yet. I figured Manafort was the one they were going to pressure with others below him.

I Don’t Recognize My Country

The President of the United States defended Nazis and was praised by the former Grand Wizard of the KKK. What the hell happened to my country?
