Benevolent to Bolshevik in a Heartbeat

It’s not so much that Republicans and Democrats look at the Mueller report and see different facts, it is that they have different definitions of the alleged crimes. Mueller said “no collusion” and “I can’t figure out if there was obstruction or not in the exercise of Trump’e legitimate constitutional powers – but here’s 10…

How We Got Here

On my post about how the Mueller reaction makes our government appear, a commenter asked the valid question of “How did we get here?” My somewhat expanded answer: My theory is that we elected people with even fewer values than the President.

A Wildfire of Straw Men

Democrats can’t exist without the protection of the media. I watched Pelosi on 60 Minutes tonight and Leslie Stahl addressed Pelosi’s assertion that Trump ” is engaged in an ‘unconstitutional assault on the Constitution.’” Pelosi’s response: “That’s right.
