FAKE NEWS OR REAL NEWS:  HARD TO TELL THESE DAYS

For the past three years we have heard President Donald Trump complain about how the media treats him unfairly.  I think some of his criticism is unwarranted and he uses this complaint to fire up his base.  But overall the media has treated both him and his administration unfairly.  We all remember some of the… Continue reading FAKE NEWS OR REAL NEWS:  HARD TO TELL THESE DAYS

Impeachment and a Couple of Other Things

I have not written anything in this blog for over a week because I have been watching the hearings in the House and trying to make some sense out of what the witnesses have said. What it comes down to is simple. The career service people in the State Department all seem to believe that… Continue reading Impeachment and a Couple of Other Things

Hillary Clinton on Russian Conspiracies and Her Own Delusions

I think it would be fair to say that Hillary Clinton did not expect to lose the Presidential race in 2016 and was shocked as the numbers came in that November night. From a close friend of mine she refused to accept that results and became unmanageable in the hotel suite.

Two Bad Decisions By President Trump

In my opinion, President Trump has completely mishandled a couple of important things in the past week. First, the impeachment effort by the Democrats. He has come out swinging when he should have remained quiet and allowed surrogates to carry the fight. The Democrats in the House are playing political games with this issue and… Continue reading Two Bad Decisions By President Trump

As we continue to march down the road towards the Democrats filing Articles of Impeachment against President Trump, we have to look at some of the facts, some of the assumptions and some of the actions of the players. It is like a carousel and there are many horses on the merry-go-round that we have… Continue reading The Impeachment Merry-Go-Round
