IRAN; 01/06/2020

“What I perceive is their strategy is to goad the United States into a military confrontation that compels the other nations to intervene and is opposed by a large percentage of Congress and the Americans, resulting in negotiations with the Iranians as equal participants. Kinda like a Hail Mary pass in the last minute of… Continue Reading

    I agree with your comments and concerns….with the exception of the last paragraph…it seems to me that Trump believes only he can “do this”. I am truly not sure how we got here and hope we can get out. I don’t remember any moment in our history that compares to this. We need our allies and Trump seems determined to blow them off. This is an ugly moment in our history.

      Thanks for your comment. I am not saying Trump alone can do whatever but that he believes and acts that way. He stated so many times at the 2016 Convention and since. The way he treats our allies, the way he uses the Justice Department as his personal law firm, etc. Rather than leading the free world, we seem to stand apart and even opposite it. He is in so far over his head that it will take years to recover.

IMPEACHMENT INTERREGNUM; 01/02/2020

Well,: the joyous holiday season is over and we return to the ugly, hyper-partisan warfare. Not since the trench warfare of World War I has there been such an unproductive, destructive, polarized, unreasoning stalemate. Congress returns to work (?) on Monday. Here is the state of play:  Prior to adjourning for their 2 week vacation… Continue Reading

IMPEACHMENT: PHASE III; December 10, 2019

Yesterday the House Judiciary Committee had its second public hearing on the issue of impeachment. The Republicans had criticized the Democrats loudly for not presenting evidence of the alleged crimes committed by President Trump at the first hearing. Partly, I believe, in response to that criticism, this hearing consisted of the attorneys for the Democrat… Continue Reading

IMPEACHMENT; A PRIMER; 10/30/2019

The goal is to provide a basic understanding of the process and nuances without judgment (at least for now). The drafters of the Constitution were concerned about abuse of the far-reaching powers given to the President of… Continue Reading

DEEP STATE; 10/28/2019

The term “Deep State” has come to mean a cabal of unappointed professional bureaucrats working stealthily to undermine President Trump and prevent his re-election or foster his impeachment. There are no details as to how they are organized or coordinate their efforts; they just exist. It seems to me that the real Deep State citizens… Continue Reading
