The Democrats Dilemma.

Posted on May 31, 2019

  All is not well in the House of Representatives. Stirrings, murmurs, whispers are circulating the halls, the bathrooms, dare say I? The Gymnasium. The talk is whether to go ahead and Impeach the 45th President, Donald J. Trump for obstructing of justice. To do what is right for the American people, and ultimately, as their civic duty as Representatives. Unfortunately, that is not how it is going, instead? Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and every Cable, Newspaper and News Media outlet is working overtime to shove the impeachment narrative down our throats. Either for or against. And the outcome of this? Well as Democratic Presidential Candidate Beto O’Rourke said in his speech last night…wait? Did he give a speech last night? You know, I’m not…

Donald Trump…the guy at the end of the bar.

  Donny sits at the end of the bar. I’ve seen Donny around for years, usually sipping on his soft drink, maybe ordering a burger, Donny always has something to say. It’s best to ignore Donny, but he rarely ignores you. Some people like to argue with him, but those poor fools, well, Donny tends to get the better of them. “Yeah, hey Don, what do you know about politics? Huh? You’re just a real estate guy!” One patron will chuckle at him. Donny bobs his head, finishes his bite of his burger and calmly says. “You ever put up a garage at your house? Remember all the red tape you went though? Try putting up a hundred million dollar building in NYC, then…

We need to impeach President Trump right now!…like today, maybe tomorrow.

  We are wasting precious time here. President Trump must be impeached as soon as possible. If we don’t? We will never have enough time to see Mike Pence give the most boring speech telling us he is ascending to the Presidency with a Heavy Heart.   And that is just sad.   We really need to hear that speech. Then, we need now President Pence, to run for President in 2020 and just get his butt whooped. I am rubbing my hands in anticipation awaiting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s announcement they are moving forward on Articles of Impeachment. If this occurs, do you think Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy? We can only hope. Of course there is a slight problem…

In defense of Old White Guys.

    Say it isn’t so Joe…well, he did it. Hoping that the 3rd time is the charm, former Vice President Joe Biden is running, again, for President of the United States of America. A former Senator from Delaware he has had a long distinguished career in the Senate and politics in general. Tapped to be then Senator, Barack Obama’s running mate in 2008. Joe Biden brought his experience and inside knowledge of Washington D.C. politics to the ticket. It was a winning ticket. Joe Biden is a powerhouse of a candidate. A force to be reckoned with, and the Trump re-election committee will be working overtime to combat this threat. Well, they would have.   But now? Joe has issues. For one, he’s…

The conclusion of the Mueller Report. The President is Human after all.

Posted on April 19, 2019

    I want to think the President was sitting in the Oval Office, pen in hand, when the news dropped. Rod Rosenstein had appointed a Special Counsel. He drops his pen on the desk. Laces his fingers as he sits back and takes a deep breath, sinus issues and all, and then looks up. He is looking at the Oval Office, a place, for almost two years, he has fought hard to be at. He really isn’t looking at anything, but thinking. He looks at the nervous messenger standing in front of him, and says the most human thing a person can say.   “Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f’d.”   Of course it…

Obstruction, Obstruction…what’s your function?

    I have to say I am very impressed with Robert Mueller. For one, he was a Democratic Party darling, now he is a Republican Party darling. The man knows how to make people happy and sad in less than 24 hours. That is impressive. But it was the genius of stacking his investigators deck with ardent Liberal Democrats that was amazing. Taking people on who absolutely hated President Trump, those who would look into every nook and cranny hoping to find a sliver of Collusion or in reality, Conspiracy.   Yet it didn’t turn out that way.    Robert Mueller put himself in the cat-bird seat by this action. If he would have chosen a more non-partisan group, or say non-political group,…

Take away from the Mueller Report: Russian’s don’t collude.

Posted on March 24, 2019

  Right now, in News Rooms across the United States of America, there is not a long nail to be found. Chewed down to their hyponychium’s. (you know, fingertips.) All in anticipation of what will be in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Mr. Mueller handed in the report on Friday, in typical Washington fashion, and now it is being examined and gone over with a fat black sharpie before it can be released this Sunday. (Maybe). Redacting for a living must suck. The report is the culmination of just shy of 2 years worth of investigations into whether the current President of the United States, Donald Trump, colluded with agents from the Russian government in order to win the 2016 Presidential Election. A dastardly…
