Is Trump’s “Good ‘ol Boy”, Jeff Sessions, Getting Ready to Bail?

It looks as though there is a rift developing between Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump. It seems that President Trump is very pissed off because Jeff Sessions chose to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia investigation. Apparently, “the Donald” takes Jeff Sessions’ recusal as some sort of disloyalty or Sessions not being a “team player”. In reality, this recusal by Jeff Sessions is one of the few times in his entire career where he has actually displayed any type of ethics or balls.

The only bad thing for Jeff Sessions is that he “conveniently” violated his recusal by making a public statement about former FBI director, James Comey. This was totally unethical for Jeff Sessions to do, and to make it worse, he knew it was wrong to violate his recusal after making such a big deal out of it. It must be really nice to be in a position like Jeff Sessions where you can turn off your sense of ethics like turning off a light switch. Of course, can we expect anything different from a cabinet member of Donald Trump?

One thing that really pissed off Donald Trump was that Jeff Sessions gave “the Donald” only 20 minutes notice before announcing his recusal. Even I can admit that this was a rather tacky move by Jeff Sessions, even if it was a treatment for someone like Donald Trump, whom I totally despise.

Now it seems that Jeff Sessions is going to resign his position as Attorney General; a position that he was never qualified to fill in the first place. His record as a federal prosecutor in Alabama and his term in the U.S. Senate hardly showed any real talent or skill for the job. His appointment was just another patronage appointment, made by Donald Trump because he felt obligated to Sessions because he was a Trump supporter. During the campaign, Jeff Sessions was one of Donald Trump’s biggest cheerleaders. Now, it looks as though their “bromance” is over. What a pity!

We Need a Special Prosecutor for Trump

Even some Republicans want an independent investigation.

We Need a Special Prosecutor for Trump

The firing of FBI Director James Comey makes it glaringly apparent that a special prosecutor is needed to investigate possible ties between the Trump administration and the Russians.  There is no way that the Donald Trump, or his administration can be trusted being allowed anywhere near this fiasco. Of course, fiasco may be the wrong word.  A better word might be salvation.  I guess it depends on where you sit, and whose side you are on.

What I interpret to be a hopeful sign that a special prosecutor may be appointed is the fact that a few Republicans are in favor of a special prosecutor, and are calling for the appointment of one.  Looking at it for a cynic like me, I wonder who will be the right people to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate this matter.  This entire process must be kept as clean as possible. In fact, it has to be squeaky clean or the results won’t be believable or interpreted as being truthful.

It is a hopeful sign when a senator of John McCain’s prestige, is one of the Republicans calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor.  Even though I must confess that John McCain isn’t one of my favorite people, his appearance on the scene does lend some credibility to the process, at least in some circles.  He knows that a special prosecutor is the only fair way to get to the bottom of this matter, without any tampering from either side, Democrats, Republicans or any others who may have some type of special interest on the outcome of any investigation.  That way, after a special prosecutor finishes his/her investigation, nobody can accuse anyone else of rigging the outcome for political gain.

Donald Trump, in his own “tweets” to the public, is very close to crossing the line over into obstruction of justice, a criminal charge for which he is skirting, if not trampling over.  He and his entire administration have tried to derail Comey’s investigation from the start.  I guess the straw that finally broke “the Donald’s” back is when Comey started asking for more funding and investigators to help with the investigation.  At that point, Donald Trump may as well have shouted out, “I’m as guilty as hell”.  He obviously has never learned or developed a poker face.  Of course, he’s too arrogant to think he needs one.

It has become very obvious to many people Donald Trump doesn’t really know much about civics, government and most of all, history, or else he would know that he is playing straight out of “The Richard Nixon Playbook” in the way that he is dealing with this situation.

He must not remember or was too busy making money and being a sexist to remember that after Richard Nixon fired independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, his ship started sinking increasingly faster. Hopefully, Donald Trump’s ship will soon sink like a rock.

Was The Trump Campaign In Collusion With Russia?

The title of this article asks a question that is probably on the minds of most Americans.  At least it should be.  Whether or not the Trump campaign was in collusion with Russia to fix the election is probably one of the most important questions that have come along since the beginning of the United States.

Yesterday, Director of the FBI, James Comey announced that the FBI is conducting an investigation into whether the Trump campaign had communication with Russia, before the election.  This announcement could have huge ramifications, especially if the FBI investigation turns up something solid against Donald Trump and members of his campaign staff.

I think it probably Donald Trump and his campaign staff were in collusion with Russia to fix the 2016 presidential election.  Even though this hasn’t been proven yet, or maybe never will, I think Donald Trump is as guilty as shit.  Ironically, it was Donald Trump who was going around during the campaign, saying that the election was fixed in favor of Hillary Clinton.  If there is any justice in this world, the FBI investigation into the trump campaign will expose this loudmouth jackass for what he really is; a self-serving traitor to the United States.

This entire incident leads to more questions; such as, what will be done if the election was fixed, what will be the penalty, who will be punished, and a myriad of other questions that I truly don’t know is covered by the US Constitution.  I’m not even sure if the U.S. Constitution covers this type of thing, although it probably has something written in its wise words.

The only thing I know is that a president of bathroom United States can be impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors”.  In this case, Donald Trump, and members of his campaign staff are guilty of “high crimes”.  If I believed in capital punishment, which I don’t, Donald Trump would be executed for treason.  To work with another country, in this case, Russia, to fix an American election is nothing less than treason.

It will be extremely interesting to see how this unseemly episode of American history plays out.

Donald Trump Stops Blowing One of His Dog Whistles

Donald Trump Stops Blowing One Of His Dog Whistles

I was always under the impression that one had to actually commit a crime before being locked up, least if there was any type of justice left in the United States.  However, that didn’t stop Donald Trump from using the “campaign promise” (a.k.a. ploy) of promising to lock up Hillary Clinton if he was elected POTUS.

Most people who had any sense knew that Mrs. Clinton was guilty of nothing that would make it possible for her to be locked up.  On the other hand, Trump supporters, most of whom have very little sense, was stupid enough to listen to one of the dog whistles that he used throughout his campaign.  Now it seems that he has stopped blowing this particular dog whistle, much to the disappointment of his fans.  Oh well!  They were the ones stupid enough to listen to his bullshit first.

Even though he and his supporters (“deplorables” according to Hillary Clinton) wanted to make a big thing out of her so-called “e-mail scandal”, it has been pretty well shown that there was little substance to build a case on, and I’m pretty sure that the Donald Trump campaign knew it all along.

Even though “eleventh-hour” announcement from James Comey, head of the FBI, that the Justice Department was going to stay with its original finding that Mrs. Clinton had done nothing wrong or criminal. It said that they would not pursue any investigation because it  was unwarranted.  Unfortunately for Hillary Clinton, and probably the rest of the country, this news came far too late in the game to affect the outcome of the election.

By the way, the person delivering the speech in this video, Chris Christie, is one of the biggest criminals and should be locked up behind the “Bridgegate” scandal. Everyone in New Jersey who has any sense knows that he is as guilty as hell.  For Christie to even imply that someone else is a crook is like the pot calling the kettle black.

Maybe, I’ll take back that part about justice in the United States.  After this election, I’m convinced that there probably is none.

Darrell Issa Calls For Government Shutdown 

“We should be willing to shut down the government if the president won’t limit his power,” he said, noting that his party had repeatedly been “willing to shut down the government over ending Obamacare and these other things.” Those things, according to Issa, are “small points compared to the actual balance of our republic.”

Rep. Darrell Issa Calls for Government Shutdown

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) who has said that he will never support a government shutdown apparently has changed his mind. He is now calling for a government shutdown because the FBI says that they will not charge Hillary Clinton with a crime.

Rep. Issa refuses to accept the fact that Hillary Clinton, even though she may have been sloppy with her email security, is not guilty of any crime. Darrell Issa is livid over this statement by FBI Director, James Comey that Hillary Clinton “is guilty of no crime”. This entire thing reminds me of the movie, “A Few Good Men” where the character played by Jack Nicholson says, “you can’t handle the truth.”

As you may remember, Darrell Issa is the former chair of the House Oversight Committee, the committee that tried so hard to prove that Hillary Clinton had made huge mistakes and even did something illegal when she handled the Benghazi incident when she was Secretary of State. After that committee could not prove a damn thing, Darrell Issa persisted in his inquisition costing taxpayers millions of dollars.

Darrell Issa is certainly no one to talk about anyone being a criminal, especially since he has been charged in the past with various crimes, including, grand theft auto, threatening another person with a gun, and even arson.

Maybe, Darrell Issa should take a look at his backyard before he calls someone else a criminal.
