My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
In 1966 Robert F. Kennedy delivered a speech that included an instance: There is a Chinese curse which says “Mayhelive in interesting times.” Like it or not,we live in interesting times. They aretimesof danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.
Two days ago special counsel Robert Mueller made a 9 1/2 minute report to the country. Whether you like him or you don’t like him this man is a patriot and I believe he wanted to warn us not just about the abuses in the white house but also the threat to our democracy by foreign actors, especially Russia, but with thanks to this Administration to others including China and Iran.
he urged that all Americans read the reports that he and his team put together. It’s not a dry read but it’s certainly not a John Grisham novel I’m posting this because I’m hoping that my followers on this blog will take the time to download this and read the part they are interested in if not the whole 485 pages.
Our democracy is at stake here. I think it is our civic duty to read this report that took two years in the making. Yesterday the report paid for itself. Paul manafort’s for securus of his properties including a condominium on the 43rd floor of Trump Tower are now the properties of the United States of America and its citizenry. The Marshal Service will be posting these properties for sale and they’re value is considered to be conservatively at 42 million dollars. The whole power investigation cost $22, 000,000.
Let TV commentators be TV commentators but it’s time for us to get on the saddle and read the report itself.
I’m not sure if it’s funny or disturbing that info wars, the right wing fake news organization, would have a Washington bureau chief. In any case it seems that the man is going to be indicted by special counsel Mueller and that’s good. I’m sure the far right is going to say that they’re being Target it and I’ve noticed that those who have appeared in front of either the grand jury or the FBI in questions regarding the Russia probe have said that they may be indicted. But it also is strange that the only ones that ever say that are people like Rodger Stone. I think they want to be invited, I think they are looking for the publicity.
Why would one go out into the public Arena and say they think they’re going to be indicted? Are they got guilty?
The special counsel, and the special counsel’s office is on firm footing. Thanks to the broad mandate given to him by Deputy attorney-general Rod Rosenstein his mandate is not going to go away anytime soon, much to the sorrow of trump supporters.
Now this Kavanagh guy that they want to put on the Supreme Court and he may well invalidate or try to vote against the special counsel’s office. the Judiciary branch of government must check the other two branches of government. If it is not do its job then our democracy is truly at risk.
