AG Barr & The Never-Ending War on Trump

Posted by AllardK on April 16, 2019 at 4:12 PM

AG Barr is being attacked from multiple fronts for having summarized the Mueller report as not providing sufficient evidence for obstruction of justice charges against President Trump. In both mainstream media and more progressive media he's called another Roy Cohn or just simply Trump's personal lawyer because he used the word "spy" when describing the FBI's surveillance of Carter Page, and perhaps others, back in 2016.

Congress and the President Run for Re-election - The Administrative State Runs the Country

Posted by AllardK on April 11, 2019 at 6:59 PM

Once again, we have a case study of Trump versus the bureaucracy. This time it has to do with the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998, and basically how the chain of succession should happen in a federal agency or department when someone gets fired or retires or leaves their post at the top of the agency.

Posted by AllardK on April 1, 2019 at 9:56 PM

Your swearing-in ceremony as a cabinet secretary should be the highlight of your political career. Maybe you have ambitions to be president and so it's the last stepping stone on your ascent to the pinnacle, but for almost everyone who reaches that far, it's as far as you'll ever get.

Posted by Roy Ellis on March 23, 2019 at 9:04 PM

Mueller's report was released to the DOJ this past Friday pm and probably has been briefed to a few Senators at this time. Such a waste of money and time but that's a speck on a gnats ass as it relates to . . .

Trump Train Steams Toward 2020

Posted by Roy Ellis on March 18, 2019 at 7:22 PM

It's wonderful to see the President bypassing, going around fake news. He twittered some 21 times on Sunday, if you can believe that. He lambasted 'lo IQ McCain', said the Muller report should never see the light of day as it was a witch hunt, all good stuff for his base.

Does 'The Handmaid's Tale' Have it Backwards?

Posted by AllardK on March 13, 2019 at 1:56 PM

The Sixth Circuit has ruled that Ohio's law that blocks funding to organizations that perform or promote "non-therapeutic" abortions "does not violate the Constitution because the affiliates do not have a due process right to perform abortions."

Cohen Hearing - Tlaib's Attack on Meadows & Democracy

Posted by AllardK on February 28, 2019 at 3:28 PM

Between everything that was said and everything that will be said about Michael Cohen's testimony before Congress this Wednesday, there was a key moment in the 2nd half of the testimony around 4:30 in the afternoon, roughly speaking. It involved Michigan rookie Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib and the GOP's Mark Meadows, with Chairman Cummings in the middle.

We Need A National Crisis, Now

Posted by Roy Ellis on February 14, 2019 at 9:23 PM

Senator Mitch McConnell and Sarah Huckabee Sanders are reported as saying that the President will sign legislation to fund the g'mint and, also, sign an exec order declaring a 'national crisis' at the southern border. In doing so he will quell some dim anxiety over keeping g'mint open and create a fracas in congress/senate over 'abuse of exec power' re declaring a national crisis. I suspect GOP globalists will fight him harder than the dims over funding the wall thru declaring a crisis at the border.

A Deal With the Taliban & Honor in Afghanistan

Posted by AllardK on February 1, 2019 at 1:28 PM

Do you know a family who has lost a son or father or wife or sister to the war in Afghanistan? Do you know someone who knows someone? Perhaps not, but thousands of lives have been affected: directly by death and injury and indirectly by what their families have had to live through and deal with.

Was it worth it and is it worth it?

Has the Shutdown Shown That Almost Everything is Run by the Administrative State?

Posted by AllardK on January 30, 2019 at 4:59 PM

Before he headed off to sit in Koch's lap - in other words, to attend his annual confab and adoringly transmit their latest objectives to his readers - the Washington Post's James Hohmann affirmed in his Daily 202 newsletter that the shutdown has proven (one should use the past simple rather than the present perfect because this specific Daily 202 was published a day before the shutdown ended so please forgive my mixed tenses) that government in all it's sprawling forms is essential to life in America.
