Senate Judicial Committee and Possible Firing of Mueller

Brief note: I ran across this hearing and while I believe there is just cause for making the argument that Special Counsel is important to have, there were some interesting points in this particular “hearing” that are worth looking at closely in order to preserve our Constitution as the founding fathers envisioned it. Also, as usual MSM had little overall to say on this meeting and its findings though it was really a rather important meeting.

The Mueller

investigation summed up. First comes the laugh of the day from Gowdy and Goodlatte:  “Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status. The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight.” Pardon the Gunny but… Now the assessment of Mueller and … Continue reading

Cleveland Brown Players Partner With Police To Understand What Officers Deal With On A Daily Basis

Cleveland Brown Players Partner With Police To Understand What Officers Deal With On A Daily Basis One of the smartest ways I can think of to learn more and understand better about the stress placed on law enforcement is to have those who are being disrespectful partner with officers and ride along with them on patrol or participate in a short training course to learn more about themselves and the stress that officers deal with on a daily basis. To their credit the Cleveland Browns did just that. Here is what happened and some of their comments on the experience. … Continue reading

Obama’s Russian Troubles Grow

and this cover-up makes Watergate look like a kindergarden finger-painting session. And now it is gaining traction, being reported in the NY Post! EXCERPT:  “It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks. Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals … Continue reading

President Trump’s Letter to House and Senate Leaders

President Donald J. Trump’s Letter to House and Senate Leaders & Immigration Principles and Policies October 08, 2017 For Release I am pleased to transmit to you my Administration’s principles for reforming our Nation’s immigration system.

As President, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution, which makes clear that all legislative … Continue reading

President Trump’s New EO on Healthcare

I am not sure how states will react and open up their borders but hopefully they will see this as a positive move to help their beleaguered citizens.

Policy. (a) It shall be the policy of … Continue reading
