052618 Meet with Mueller?

Here’s how Trump could handle the interview request.

“Sure, we’ll meet with you, Mr. Mueller!  You betcha.  Just a couple of ground rules, because I’ve got some questions for you, too, sport!  Using my Constitutional power to require the opinion in writing of the principal officer in each executive department upon any subject relating to …

052518 Why do we put people under oath in legal proceedings?

What does the oath accomplish?  What’s the benefit to society of this procedure?  As best I can determine from researching this question, it helps us make better decisions and avoid mistakes.  When we are equipped with truth, we can avoid punishing the innocent and avoid letting the guilty go free.  The oath is intended …

052418 Here’s something GOP could do that would actually be helpful

Following up on my shy, timid, dull, meek, middle-of-the-road post from 5/21 … here’s an example of how we can apply legislative power to stop the rape and murder of our freedom.

Our Constitution empowers Congress to make the rules governing the exercise of judicial power.  There is the general power of Article I, Section …

052318 Checking in with Benjamin Wittes

Thought this might be a good week to check back in with Benjamin Wittes.  Sharyl Attkisson’s collusion timeline noted that on October 24, 2016, Benjamin wrote that he would ask the Coalition of All Democratic Forces to respond to a Trump win by assembling a very public, cross-ideological network of lawyers and philanthropists willing …

052218 What about the BACK end of the transactions?

This refers to a couple of aspects of the Russia collusion narrative where Obama and Clinton operatives have made comments exonerating themselves on the FRONT end of a transaction.  But what about the BACK end of the transaction?  The mainstream media seems wholly uninterested in probing that!

For example, the Clinton campaign said they didn’t …

052118 Reality check

I don’t mean to be pessimistic, I’m trying to be helpful in pointing out the reality that if we keep doing the same thing in the same way, then we’ll keep getting the same result.  The “thing” we’re talking about today is trying to hold on to a Republican majority in the Senate.  The …

052018 More on the Unfair Advantage Meter

Today we re-visit the old Unfair Advantage Meter, tracking just who-had-what unfair advantage in the 2016 Presidential election.  When we left off in the last conversation, we had the following:

Trump got the benefit of stolen Democrat e-mails published by Wikileaks.

Clinton got the benefit of stolen Trump tax return published by New York Times.

NO ADVANTAGE …

051918 More on guns and schools

Learned yesterday that in Texas we have eight thousand school campuses, and 19,000 National Guard members.  So my earlier thought of activating the National Guard in shifts throughout the school year to guard our schools … won’t be a complete solution.

Going in that direction still seems fruitful, we’d just have to augment them with …

051818 Hey, Mr. Comey, here’s another question about going by the “book”

Based on the NYT article about the FBI spying on the Trump campaign, we deduce that the “book” evidently says this:

When the Russians pay a person at least $45,000 for a speech, and that person later becomes an advisor to a Presidential campaign … the FBI should launch a counter-intelligence investigation of the campaign …

051718 Reminder about ER efforts

We’ve been trying everything we can to advance the ER solution.  Writing to the President and Members of Congress, corporate leaders, think tanks, teaching continuing education classes to CPAs, and so on.  Tens of thousands of attempts over 43 years.

My kids have told me, “Don’t give up, Dad!”

My friends have tried everything, too.  They’re …
