YES WE CAN, THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY HAS BEGUN, AND THE BEST PART, THIS IS ALL TRUMP’S OWN DOING

So I took a vacation, to get away at least for a while. Sadly, once I returned, Trump 'joked' he was The Second Coming, and then it actually got worse! But thanks to his own treasonous behavior, Donald might finally put himself and his lying minions into their proper places… out of power, in prison, or on death row.

ITS BEEN A WHILE, sorry if this one goes on a little long, but I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Way too many things have come and gone before I’ve been even finished my thoughts on them, let alone write something for the world to see. Each seismic event worthy of at least some sort of smack down. Each in their own way unprecidented, criminal and possibly treasonous. But because of the onslaught of events, all seemingly quickly forgotten by the next blockbuster that in the old days could be a month’s worth of stories to tell, if not years. But now before you can even come up with the handle on it or see the big picture, something else happens which puts all your thoughts and all the ideas in a pile with yesterdays news. Well I think its necessary, to at least mention or recap at least some of what has happened. And honestly, theres a lot of thought and hard work put into each unprecedented newsworthy discussion. Todays Neilizms, is some and all of the above. 

SMOKING GUNS A PLENTY… I’ll start with the latest. Officials say, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took part in the Ukraine call that has exploded upon our world. What? So now we learn that he supposedly was listening in on the conversation, as it was happening. Didn’t he come out on the national air waves and act like a stuttering fool, saying thing like ‘he hadn’t had the chance to even read more then a few paragraphs of the report. He would get to it.’ Which is interesting, since these tv appearences occurred after the news broke, and said he knew nothing about it. Oops. You mean he was lying? You mean one of Trump’s ‘best people’ was gaslighting the American people? Guess its a good thing it wasn’t under oath? Right Corey?

And now he’s apparently really really upset that the House is investigating his buddies in on the crime, as he’s accusing Democrats of “bullying and intimidation” saying now that he will try to pretty much stall and stop any effort to get to the truth and their crimes. Is he kidding? Has he watched his pals, including himself when he used to be in the House of Representatives as they bullied and tried to intimidate anyone who was unfortunately forced to sit in a hearing on Capital Hill? Buddy I would say I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re pro torture, but in google searching him, its turns out he is so in for it! Not to mention his time as the Director of the CIA, I can only imagine what schemes he pulled there while in charge. I shudder to image the crimes.

Plus it was reported that former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka, yes that Gorka, who supposedly now a political reporter for Sinclair, was traveling to Europe along with the press pool, with Mike Pompeo, in his offical government airplane. Which probably means they’re both looking for dirt on Joe Biden, by possibly extorting one of the Italian leaders such as their Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, or President Sergio Mattarella. Why not, you got to presume those phone calls from Donald to Sergio or Giuseppe setting up the meeting in Italy might be rich with treasonous conversation that also were hidden away in Trump’s top secret server. So one presumes this too will be talked about and queried at them the next time either of them are called to testify under oath. And you know both will be, sooner rather then later.

And if that wasn’t enough news for the week, according to The Washington Post, Trump’s Attorney General William Barr personally travelled the globe to ask foreign intelligence officials to help investigate the origins of the Mueller probe. What?!? We are talking Italy and Australia, Ukraine, to name just the two nations we know about. And this has been happening since 2016! So apparently as a private citizen, Barr travelled the globe on behalf of Donald J. Trump to investigate conspiracies and seek dirt on Trump’s opponents. What? Remember he wasn’t Attorney General till 2019! So was he travelling the globe for the sitting president, unofficially? And is that kosher? Who was paying him for doing this? Who was paying his airfare? Was this a hobby of his? Was tax payers money paying for any or all of this? Which leads me to ponder when was the offer for the position of Attorney General offered to him? Was Barr’s search for dirt, possibly on his own dime, as part of the audition for the gig as America’s attorney and Trump’s personal defense attorney? 

Lastly yesterdays trifecta of headlines which help explain Trump’s latest twitter tirade, where he actually retweeted a tweet which said, that “if the Democrats are successful in removing the president from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal” as Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger tweeted in response “This is beyond repugnant.” This disgusting retweet by Donald ended a week of insanity featuring Rudy Giuliani acting so insane, as he spouted nonsense of how he was really the whistleblower, how he had found so much dirt on the Bidens’s he gleefully announced that he would be the real hero in this story. Well the Democrats had heard and seen enough, and Rudy received a subpoena to face the House, to explain what the heck is going on. Why is a personal attorney for Trump, working with no pay mind you, going around to foreign nations and discussing our governments business? He even claims he under the orders of the state department, which so far no one seems to know if this is true or not.  

The way Rudy is discussing his discoveries, his dirt, he sounds a little too much like Trump did years a go, when he went every where he could and told the world that he was investigating Obama’s birthplace. And boy was he finding things he crowed. ‘You wouldn’t believe the things I’ve found’, and of course we never saw anything, all talk, all bluster, all lies. 

And now Trump and his aides are trying to do the same thing to Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.  Not surprisingly, the House has subpoena Giuliani for Ukraine documents, and he’s hemming and hawing on air, pretty much let it know that he he gets forced to appear, he will make a circus of it. He promises ‘to bring charts and videos’ which means get ready for a YouTube, conspiracy video review of items that have been spewing all over our Internet for years.  

A RUSH TO JUDGMENT, so hysterically now Republicans are accusing Democrats of a Rush to Judgment ‘in their zeal to remove a man they’ve hated since day one’ because ‘if the 2 1/2 years of a failed attempt to remove Trump’ which seemingly collapsed after Robert Mueller, was forced to come out and pretty much tell the world to read his report. Honestly I would have thought that at least would have shut up the liars, because inside the 400 page document, it explains what happened and it does not exonerate Donald J. Trump. Trump wasn’t innocent, he did things that could remove him from office. Sadly we discovered that day that Republicans in power,  which included Lindsey Graham actually never even read the Mueller Report. WTF?!? Just like we learned during the Sunday news shows this week, we discovered they again haven’t even read the Whistle blower’s 9 page report, which talks about the phone conversation between Trump and the new President of Ukraine, and which the transcript that the White House itself released, to try to stop the bleeding of this latest possible Presidential eviction notice.

Imagine, there are reports that a sitting President has done possibly treasonous actions, and as a person in the position to decide the future of our democracy, you don’t think its necessary to  read the Intel that the hearing you will be attending will be about. Even if it wasn’t going to be discussed in the hearing. Wouldn’t you think that you might want to at least scan the pages to learn for yourself whats actually there? But instead of actually doing their jobs, their patriotic duty, we discovered that they were using the talking points given to them by whomever is holding their leashes. 

Remember Trump’s hand picked Attorney General didn’t even want the report released in the first place. At first refusing to release it at all. Then we got his summary. Then we got five weeks of stalling. And then we got another staged performance once more tainting Mueller’s findings as nothings, and then we got the redacted report. By then nobody seemed interested in reading Mueller's findings, especially the followers of the orange pumpkin. I understand for some people it’s party first, but they’re hypocrisy shows no bounds. Listening to Republicans go after Joe Biden and his son on a conspiracy that was debunked years ago, is for me maddening. The fact that the media is waisting so much time on it, like they did on Hillary’s emails, is maddening. The fact that they now spend so much time, pondering, if this conspiracy, which is now 24/7 especially since Trump’s impeachment inquiry became official is maddening. The media swears that they don’t want to talk about the garbage, but somehow we get segment upon segment where they discuss how this is hurting or could hurt Biden. I keep hearing, is this making Democrats look another way, regardless if its proven to be a nothing now, will it be too late for Joe to recover from the accusations, and will the American people be so tired of the ugliness even if false, that they just want to turn the page to a newbie and say good night to the past, even if it was a winning one. My hope is that even if Joe Biden doesn’t get the nomination, that the American people have learned from seeing this playbook over and over again. The Trumpeter’s lie and repeat the lie till it somehow become what happened, even if its so far fetched that when you hear it, you laugh out loud. And they argue their lie is the truth and that reality, is ‘fake news’ created from the ‘deep state’ which I presume comes from whatever Hellhole their puppet master derives from.

When they discovered Hillary Clinton had a private server, immediately she was deemed a traitor. And sadly the concocted storyline seemingly won the election for Donald. But as we’ve discovered with Trump, nothing is bad enough for the Republicans in power, or worse, his deaf, dumb, and blind followers. No proof in your face horrible enough, no crime against our nation, treasonous enough. And now the trumpeting Republicans are screaming at the Democrats for rushing to judgment with the whistleblowers report. ‘It’s second hand, its hearsay, nothing in it is true’. Which of course isn’t true, and they would know it, if they actually read it. As usual in the Republican playbook, they are trying to demonize the whistleblower, before we know anything about them. And of course, they ignore and refuse to respond when confronted by the transcript of the phone conversation that is strikingly similar the whistleblower’s blockbuster report. Talk about a smoking gun! It's true that its second hand, but the words and deeds match, and boy does it make Trump look guilty.

Remember people are still out there screaming at Hillary to ‘lock her up’ for treason for her server and emails. Even after we discovered apparently everyone in his cabinet, including his daughter and son-in-law, and the Donald himself, are using private phones to do government business. Unbelievably now we’ve uncovered they’re using a top secret server to ‘Lock Down’ Trump’s shall we say questionable asks of, or promises to, other world leaders. But Hillary deserves death by the followers of the Donald, according to them, he’s the Second Coming. Now, besides lying about Trump’s multiple crimes, all these Republicans will do is talk about is Biden’s criminal deeds as fact, which the former Vice President never did, and refuse to listen to reality, because if they did they would have to confront the nightmare they have all stepped in. 

A SELF-DEFEATING PROPHECY You can get away with murder for so long, before the cracks in Trump’s facade begins to show, and those blinded by the con, wake up and the charade falls by the wayside. If I hadn’t lived through the last decade, I would almost feel bad for Republicans. They initially, supposedly, didn’t want Trump, even Lindsey called him a kook, a crackpot. But they got stuck with him. Then they went all in with him because he was getting them the judges and the supreme court appointees they wanted. And possibly the first o many huge tax breaks. So they ignored his crimes, more like helped cover them up, and partied as if it was 1999, or is that 1879? Of course we have no clue, as of yet, come on reporters start investigating, what was really happening behind the scenes. The power moves by the Trumpeters, the promises, the demands, even possibly the threats of being primaried. I’m pondering if their were even any threats on peoples lives, I’m sure they threatened to ruin their careers. Heck we’ve been a witness to their unnerving destructive abilities when it comes to even the most powerful players our world. Look how they systematically destroying everyone that investigated Trump and called him out for his crimes.    

So for over two very long years, they’ve lied, gas lit, spread conspiracies, deflected and sided with Donald on the Russian invasion and everything else, and pretty much let him get away with too many crimes. And with the camps of refugees, we were also all a witness to the sad truth that in 2018 and 2019 with this Republican Party, that they have allowed Trump to get away with murder! Every death in those camps, is in on the heads of Donald and every Republican who had allowed that situation to happen in the first place. And worse, allowed it become a full blown horror show. And what gets me is, nobody cares who actually can do something about it. No one is even talking about it anymore. Its like these people never existed. Shame on those who have already forgotten, and shame on those who continue to allow it. And thank you to those who continue to fight for those peopled rights and to end this tragedy that Donald Trump has caused.  

So instead of Donald taking a breath and turning over a new leaf ‘look everybody, I’m the Second Coming, I’ll prove that the attack were false, I am the greatest President ever, I’ll show them all! And now I’m gonna prove it. All that craziness from me, was because I was frazzled by the witch hunt, and now that I’ve been vindicated, I can relax and showcase the real me, the man the American people voted for.’ Sadly none of that happened and ever would, unless of course it was on the teleprompter and Donald read it in his usual really need a lesson in reading mode. I would think he would have turned over a new leaf, to just not push his luck. 

But like an addicted gambler, who needs to win yet another game of chance, especially after a huge score. Win streak baby. Trump now emboldened by apparently winning the greatest con in history, thanks to William Barr, besides the presidency of course, decided to do the very same thing he just had gotten away with again. Seeking and being offered dirt by foreigners and their governments on his political opponents. I guess he figured, hey, I got away with it once, or it that twice, or is that multiple times, might as well do it one more time. And it’s all there in the now released unclassified documents that Donald’s White House approved to be released. Remember we are talking about the transcripts of the phone conversation between Trump and the Ukrainian President where he asks the newly elected leader for a favor. 

The phone transcript's showcase that the Whistleblower’s Report is real and not hearsay. So for once I’ve got to thank Donald for doing the right thing. The man actually outed himself? But sorry I don’t believe it either. And after watching the trumpeters come up with a defense of his crimes on the fly, while at the same time trying to flip the talking points, that now the Democrats are somehow the traitors, showcases why he decided to release the phone transcripts in the first place. I guess his only defense now is, ‘see, what I did, its right in front your eyes.  What has always been the most maddening aspect of Trumps crimes is, that they are always in your face.  The ‘I must be innocent. If was guilty as the evidence makes it out to appear, why would I be dumb enough to release it’ defense. He’s using the excuse that, really, this, we just talked deals. That’s gonna end my presidency? This? I’ve been doing deals all my life, this is how it’s done. That is apparently Trumps defense. I can already hear him say this little word salad out, ‘And even if I did everything, I’m president, so sue me. But you can’t till I leave office. And A.G. Barr is gonna help me stay in till I’m good and ready to leave.’

Point blank, Donald J. Trump tried to extort the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, for dirt on a potential opponent in the 2020 election, Vice President Joe Biden. Pretty much, ‘No dirt Volodymyr, no money’.  Basically double downing on what he had already done and gotten away with in getting into the White House in the first place. That itself is wrong. The fact that he used the financial aid that the Congress had set aside to help Ukraine protect themselves from Russia’s continued attack, after their invasion of Crimea, I think is a nail in Donald’s coffin. The question is, does he do this on every phone call, with all the world leaders. As we have discovered, that answer is yes. it's been reported that Australia, Britain and Italy might have also gotten this Trump tactic. Could you imagine the conversations with Vladimir? Jeez, lock Trump up, lock Barr up, lock Pompei up and throw away the keys on all of them. Before they do something really bad. Ha ha ha. I think that red line, was crossed before Donald stole the Presidency.

Please remember those funds that Ukraine was promised and so desperately needed was only released, after the Whistle blower handed in his report. Not because Trump was being the good guy here by finally actually releasing something. Even though he is now is coming out saying he was the reason the money actually was going there in the first place. This had nothing to do with President Barack Obama, who actually approved it. And please give a rousing applause to the reporters on the case who uncovered and revealed this crime to the world. Remember, everything else the House has asked for is tied up in legal hoops as the Trumpeters try to cover up, whatever deed they did do, that they shouldn’t have done. Now thanks to its release, Nancy Pelosi, pushed the button to begin the Impeachment Inquiry. Imagine if the trumpeters hadn’t been stonewalling, Trump might have already been out of office months a go.

WE DONT NEED NO STINKING PRIMARIES. As if trying to just hand the election to a Democrat, now the Republicans are really in deep trouble, seemingly everything they said was ‘fake news’ from the ‘deep state’ before has exploded in their faces. Unbelievably right before this latest laugh fest erupted, the Republicans were announcing that they were ending primaries for the Republican presidential campaign in several states. I mean why have a primary Republicans? Why let the people decide they’re not happy with Trumps work? Perhaps they would choose another Republican candidate, more traditional, maybe? Funny during the run up to the 2016 election, this was one of Trump’s and Bernie Sanders’ arguments against Hillary Clinton. The conspiracy that Debbie Wasserman Schultz had rigged the primaries so Hillary would be the nominee. And guess what, he’s actually doing that now, he’s pulling the same crap that he accused other people of doing, but he’s actually doing it. Or at least the people helping him in the party are doing it, either under Trumps demands or their own volition. Perhaps that notion, no primaries, should be chucked? Right now, its conceivable that Trump could be kicked out of the presidency before the primaries actually begin. And thanks to Donald practically throwing them under the bus, ‘I think they all made phone calls about the Ukraine phone call’, his vice President, his Attorney General, possibly the entire kit and caboodle of the Trump cabinet, will be thrown out on their asses and some into a prison cell for their own wait for the long green mile. And if that happens we might have a new president, Nancy Pelosi and if dreams do come true, we have a new Vice President named Hillary Clinton. For some reason if Trump does resign, or get Impeached, I think Pence, will be out the door as well. Boy would I throw a party, not to mention millions of Americans around the nation and the globe.

Right now it feels like it’s Christmas and the 4th of July all rolled Into one. I just hope in the end my stocking isn’t stuffed with coal, and our democracy isn’t history. And our nation has been able to turn this terrible page over for good.

Just one man’s opinion.

IMPEACHMENT, IMPRISONMENT, THE DEATH PENALTY, OR SIMPLY A SLAP ON THE WRIST, AS LONG AS TRUMP LEAVES OFFICE WITH OUR DEMOCRACY STILL INTACT I’LL TAKE IT

As the Democrats begin to showcase who may and may not be in it till the end, the former Vice President, Joe Biden might have come up with the perfect slogan for 2020, “Let’s Make America, America Again!”

HAS IT BEEN REALLY ONLY BEEN A FEW WEEKS since Robert Mueller spoke and pretty much told the nation Donald J. Trump was guilty on several fronts. But, and its a big but, he just couldn’t indict him, arrest him, imprison him or slap him on the wrist, simply because the media has been pitching it as if he could as if it written in stone. Sadly Democrats holding their breath, and patriots alike should have known from the beginning that that possibility was simply not in his job description. Even though many of us have been holding onto that hope, because of all the talking heads pounding it into our heads, that Mueller would get us the answers we needed to help remove the monster in orange from his throne. Robert Mueller had been pretty much been thought of as Democracy’s last chance to get out of this mess, but as we’ve now discovered it turns out his job doesn’t actually allow him to be both judge and jury in his decision. Only investigator, and organizer of the information they uncover, no matter what William Barr’s been throwing out. He could however, write or say, that Donald J. Trump was innocent of the crimes, or that they could find nothing to implicate him if they found nothing, but sadly for Trump’s sake they found a lot, despite what every protesting Republican keeps saying. So he couldn’t clean the slate of Trump’s crimes and treasonous acts, no matter how many times Trump tries to gaslight the American citizens, or how many times William Barr comes out and distorts the Report's findings. Sorry trumpeters, your God did it, no matter how many times you listen to the made up garbage that Fox not by a mile new spews. 

Unfortunately, ‘we the people’ didn’t get what we’ve been dreaming about for years, and many of the at least out spoken Americans, are now angry at the Democrats for having expected Robert Mueller to come out in the first place, and save Democracy, as he was pitched. Why did the Democrats wait? I have to ask here, why is is always the Democrats fault, when the Republicans get caught or do the crime? Some of the Republicans who at least acknowledge we were attacked, don't go after the Trumpeter for their part in it, they go after President Barack Obama, for allowing the Russians to do it in the first place. madness people. Why can’t we for once actually go after the criminals, and not the patriots. We were expecting an answer, finally an end to all of misery's, and because of that, many people apparently are now angry at the Democrats for having expected Robert Mueller to come out and save them. To give us the answer, and end all of our misery. People are upset, because they were told to wait for the report, and now that its out, they’re angry because those in power, who have it, aren’t already putting Donald into chains. Sorry people, removing a sitting president, isn’t as simply as going on a twitter rant, there are steps you need to go through.

Sadly the fact that it wasn’t in Attorney General’s Barr’s job description either hasn’t prevented him, Donald, or the republicans from trying to shut it all down by using the words of a man who actually isn’t supposed to be make the decision in the first place. A man who came out of left field, and in less then a month after taking over the Justice Department, as Trump’s Attorney General, has pretty much thrown out what has been uncovered as nonsense and unnervingly made the final decision that Trump didn’t do anything bad enough to be punished pretty much on his own say so. And please remember, as opposed to Robert Mueller who presided over the investigation for more then two years, everything William Barr has done since taking over the job has gone against precedent. Much like another Attorney General named James Comey had done before the 2016 election, which like then could alter our next presidential election now. It was, as Robert Mueller explained, the Congress’s job to decide on this or any President’s future, not his. It was the House’s job to decide once reading his report, which route to go. It was not his job or the Attorney General’s. And now that the House has his report, if not the unredacted one, it is up to them to decide to investigate none, some, or all of the uncovered acts reported on in the report. Or better yet, open up an official Impeachment hearing since Robert Mueller’s report  has given them an outline to take it to the next phase, and possibly end our misery. Be it impeachment, possible removal, or possibly even sanctions, since getting the Senate, or should I write Mitch, to go along with this or anything at all, might not be in the cards. 

All we hear now from Trumpeters and members of what’s left of the Republican party is that the Democrats are gonna use the Impeachment hearings simply for political purposes, to try to hurt Donald to win back the White House. They keep forgetting about the obvious reasons for the Impeachment Hearings in the first place, that a crime of epic proportions has occurred, we were invaded by Russia, and that finally needs be dealt with. I mean wouldn’t you think if a foreign nation tried to and possibly succeeded in taking over our presidency (am I the only one who believes that takeover has been expanding to our nation as well), that that would be something everyone would want to investigate to see what the truth is? Then why is that subject something Republicans want to simply go away, silenced as if it never occurred? I guess the most obvious answer would be, that the Trumpeters themselves, some of whom, may have been in on it. Or if not that, perhaps it’s that they simply don’t want to lose their power they’ve currently finally obtained. Decades of hard work. Otherwise why is our nation being invaded allowed to be shoved away, as Trump and his minions appear to be doing their bidding? It’s as the Trumpeter’s want us to believe the entire nation has collective amnesia, and we’ve all completely forgotten what they pulled against Hillary Clinton, against our Democracy, and against the citizens of these United States. 

Not surprisingly and of course it fits their pattern, but hysterically, and rather maddening, some of these liars in trumpeter orange, are now calling out Nancy Pelosi and others who dared to even suggest that if found guilty, Trump should go to prison. The hypocrisy, in their cries as they accuse those saying the words as trying to turn our nation into a “Banana Republic”. Seriously, we’re still getting chants of “lock her up” ringing loudly and clearly at Trump’s current reelection events. Sometime you just want to slap your television, when you see such hypocrisy. They will scream and holler that Mueller’s report has exonerated their leader, while refusing to actually read it,  while attacking those who have as liberal leftists, all the while refusing to discuss the crimes laid out in it, or what Mueller himself has said, all they do is attack and try to demean whomever dares go after traitor's running our nation. 

So William Barr decided to spew a totally tainted take on Mueller’s Report, completely twisting what was in it, by first coming out and delivering to us his 4 page summary while acting like he was the final say in everything, when he wasn’t. He also refused to answer questions, explaining that once the report was released everyone would see he was right and the President didn’t do anything wrong. Pretty much telling the American people to just hold hands and sing America The Beautiful. This occurred almost 2 months a head of the Mueller Report’s release, which of course we all know was redacted. As soon as Barr came out with his false take on the Report, it was reported as proof Trump was innocent. Of course there were voices out there saying, can we wait to read the report, perhaps William Barr’s take on it, isn’t exactly what’s in it. Let us not forget how he got in, with his term paper, pitching Trump’s defense, which turned out to basically be his pitch to us citizens on what Mueller handed over to him. His personal take on our Constitution. So Fox, not by a mile news, spent 24/7 pitching Trump’s innocence and the Democrats being traitors. Not to mention, William Barr, repeatedly coming out and now actually attacking Robert Mueller for doing a bad job! And because of all the lies, and most importantly national security, I mean we were attacked by Russia, and half of political system is ignoring it, to protect a sitting President, screw the danger to our Democracy. And I guess, being the patriot that he is, Robert Mueller  had to reluctantly come out, but only after announcing he was retiring, so he could actually say a few words, to give what he himself called his only response to the report he was planning to ever make. 

But in reality, all Robert Mueller actually did was come out and narrate his report, by reading sentences and paragraphs taken right off of the pages of the Mueller Report. Words that Robert Mueller thought he needed us the American people to hear. Words that sadly practically nobody has actually taken the time to read themselves. And by doing so, he put an exclamation mark for the ones he did choose to point out. His reasoning's why he did not indict Trump, and why he couldn’t clear him of any charges, from the investigation, and most importantly Russia’s attack on our Democracy which probably had a hand in Trump’s electoral college victory. All of these needed to be heard, and shouted out to the highest rooftops. Trump wasn’t cleared, Putin did invade our nation, and there are many items that should be looked into by the House written down in black and white. And all of it is in the Mueller Report.

Of course not knowing Robert Mueller personally, and like most of us, except for the few times we’ve seen him on tape speaking, or watched him on video loops walking, this was in a lot of ways, our first real introduction to him. And I for one was not disappointed. Other then this pretty momentous occasion, all we’ve seen of Robert Mueller or heard about him, is what the media has presented to us, and how they categorized him. From every side of the political hemisphere, all we got prior to and during the investigation, especially before he handed the final report over to William Barr, was that Mueller was a straight shooter, a man of total integrity, and that he was the person who should decide our nations future. Someone that was overwhelmingly excitingly welcomed when he was given the position of leading what was to become an investigation into the Trump world and possible Russian activities. So it was actually thrilling for me, to discover as I watched his nearly 10 minute pitch for his now historic document, how the man had far surpassed how the media had pitched him. To put it nicely it irks me when listening to liars like William Barr, and the rest of the talking heads running the Trumpeters publicity channel, as they now go after Robert Mueller as a loser and a nobody who wasn’t up to the job. For me this is a real a slap in the face to this great man, to our nation, and to the rule of law. Shame on them.    

But that being written, I got the feeling by him coming out and finally speaking, that Mueller was actually more frustrated at how some in the media was running with William Barr’s interpretation of what the Mueller Report, then he was upset about the fact that the majority of the American people hasn’t read it yet. The man understands that most Americans won’t sit down to read a 450 page anything, unless Stephen King writes it. But I would presume he would expect that the members of the Congress would take the time to peruse it, perhaps scan some of the pages or at least open the cover to see the contents page at least. Remember our nation was attacked by a foreign nation, hello! Apparently nobody in the Republican party, except one or two stragglers, want to even discuss it. Of course if you read the report, you would find a fascinating section on the attack on our Democracy by the Russians. How they invaded us through social networking and helped sway masses of American’s to turn to Fox, how WikiLeaks was used to hurt Hillary and help Donald, and a number of other items we’ve been hearing about in leaks and whispers, but which are all outlined and discussed in detail in it. 

Plus, Robert Mueller coming out, might at least keep the conversation going on what Trump and Putin pulled the last election, and are probably already doing again. Perhaps now that the 97% of the public who is estimated as non-readers of the Mueller Report, will after hearing all the buzz about his appearance, might pick up a copy of it, or download it, like I did, and start to learn first hand what Mueller and his team uncovered. After reading the report myself, I know my feelings on what is showcased. And now after seeing him live on television, I was standing in bedroom, cheering his heroic comments, Knowing now, that he, because of his refusal to left the orange man off, is now considered public enemy no. 1 by the Trumpeters, and as a patriotic American, I can not think of a higher trophy to be but to be on their radar.

I mean I was ecstatic to see the man we all prayed would get this right, was for once advertised perfectly. And like in the movie ‘Saving Private Ryan’, when happily it was turned out that Private James Ryan himself, was a man that was thankfully worthy of the other soldier’s sacrifice. Well watching this, yes, I will call him great American speak truth to power was as patriotic as it ever gets. While he may not have given any of us the final solution we had hoped for, either a full exoneration or a total guilty as sin finding, he stoically demonstrated that he was a man of his word and the very definition of principle. Robert Mueller pretty much said, read the report, and Congress please do your jobs. He gave them a road map, he threw out a ton of bread crumbs, and now he want them to do their constitutional duty. Robert Mueller simply said here you go, people you got your questions, I have the answers written in clean and concise English. Almost everything you are seeking is in it, despite what those who haven’t read it keep saying. So why not spend a few hours and learn a thing or two, it might even open your eyes. 

So because of the dirty tricks that the trumpeters are pulling Robert Mueller needed to repel the way William Barr and the Republicans has mischaracterized his findings since he handed it over to the current Attorney General. Mueller pretty much told those political leaders and all the talking heads who are using those same Barr lies, to quit using them as proof that nothing was uncovered. To halt making this political, and to start making it patriotic, our Democracy is at the crossroads, its time to put partisanship aside and do your jobs. To cease lying to everyone who can hear, that the President and his minions, did nothing wrong, when there are hundreds of pages which actually report the opposite. To stop characterizing everything that was revealed as a partisan political lie made up by those horrible liberal Democrats. And most importantly, its time to remind our political leaders and the citizens of the United States, that Russia actually did invade us during the last Presidential campaign, and are still doing it. Despite what Donald J. Trump keeps trying to spin, and worse keeps trying to cover up, and yes Russia helped Trump get in. 

I could keep going, but I if I did, this might not come out for another week or so, and by then this commentary would feel so like last year, if it already doesn’t. I mean, actually I didn’t expect my conversation on Robert Mueller’s coming out, and the reactions to it, and the report itself, so far would turn into as lengthy a commentary.  I’d like to menton how the Democrats are handling the post Mueller Report release and as this has been going on, and beleive it or not, I am in a happy place. While my favorite isn’t running, many of those who are are making be almost giddy with excitement. I must admit I have my doubts about Vice President Joe Biden, because of his age, and sometimes it gives me pause how a man of his years will handle the campaign especially if he gets the nomination. That being written, after watching today’s afternoon campaign stunt speech, it gave me hope that he is up for the job. And at least for me one of his best lines, which I used as part of the sub-head of this piece, “He says, ‘let’s make America great again,’” Biden said of Trump in Iowa. “Let’s make America America again.” Funnily it turns out Michael Avenatti, Stormy Daniels’s former lawyer, actually originated the quote.  Personally, I dont care who came up with the slogen, so whomever did, borrow it for Joe, good one. They say you can’t go home again. Well hope we can, in the case of our Democracy.

ONE THINGS FOR SURE, TRUMP’S AG BARR HAS CEMENTED IT IN STONE, THE REPUBLICANS ARE MORE INTERESTED IN A COVER UP, THEN PROTECTING OUR DEMOCRACY

After this web of lies that William Barr has spun, enough, I get your fears but sorry Democrats, the trumpeters are making it impossible for you not to… Donald wants his day in court, so Nancy time to give it to him, let’s all watch him hang himself

POINT BLANK, WILLIAM BARR IS ONE BIG FAT LIAR, and boy I so hope his smugness, arrogance, and pointblank criminal behavior gets him incarcerated. Even if it’s only for contempt for refusing to release the full unredacted Mueller Report, which includes all its pertinent evidence and paperwork that would help them flesh out the breadcrumbs, Robert Mueller might have left them to discover and work with. And of course his failure to testify in front of the Democratic led House of Representatives, and as its Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi point blank expressed, lying under oath! It is a shame Barr decided not to appear in front of the House, something he was scheduled to do, but decided to skip it after his testimony in front of the Republican led Senate didn’t go as wonderfully as the Trumpeters hoped. As the minions on the right once again showcased what soulless sellouts they are, by simply refusing to do anything that might hurt the Donald and their political futures, or at least discuss what the Russians had done, which was reported a lot in Mueller’s report! 

If you listen to Donald, William Barr, FOX news and the rest of the right wing propaganda machine (yes Bill and Hillary were right, it exists), at least they admit that we were attacked by Russia, but according to them the Trumpeters had nothing to do with it. The fact that foreign agents be it civilian or political operatives, some working with Vladimir Putin himself, had contacted apparently every single trumpeter, and they had discussions about everything, including voter information in several states that Trump surprisingly won, but even doesn’t mean squat. They all repeat Trump’s mantra, The Mueller Report proved Trump was innocent, "no collusion" mimicking the words that William Barr or Donald J. Trump himself had concocted to gaslight a nation into believing a lie that he pitched to actually get the gig in the first place. According to them, the real criminals in this historic event are President Barack Obama and the Democrats, especially former Secretary of State and should be President, Hillary Clinton, because they did nothing to stop them, sanctions be damned. The real traitors in the sordid affair weren’t those who were in on the conversations, those who agreed to meet  because of the promised juicy dirt on the Democratic nominee for President, or those who conspired to work with the Trumpeters to cheat the system, and of course let's forget all those who lied to get Donald in, and to protect from his removal from office now. According to the aspiring dictator, which was repeated by William Barr and several Republicans at the Senate Hearings, the real traitors in our midst are those who dared to go after Trump or any of his minions all. How dare they accuse are glorious leader or any of his treasonous family members of crimes. How treasonous these monsters be, they must be taken to task. They must answer to the laws of Trump's great nation. We, the followers of Donald J. Trump, are above the law, and our interpretation of the law is now the law of this corrupt nation.   

Of course William Barr’s cowardly decision to skip the scheduled Congressional hearing in front of a pack of hungry Democrats and even some Republican as well, at least some in the Congress in the Republican party, actually care about the rule of law, that can't be said of any of the Senators. If I am wrong, I apologize, and if I am, those in the minority of the Republican party, need to step up loudly, screw your political careers, the future of our American Democracy is about to be Camelot of the future. A great experiment that was toppled by mistrust and lies and sadness. I was so disappointed that the outed lying soulless Attorney General decided to skip part two in his, time to lie some more capital hill tour. I was looking forward to watching their knifes carve the hopefully soon to be impeached Barr into little perjured cubes.

No matter what he and the rest of the monsters on the right are pitching, how righteous he tries to make himself out to be, unless Barr is as dumb as the Donald as insane, he has to realize that the next time he sits in front of the Senate or when he eventually testifies in front of the House, even if its for some other hearing, he will be torn apart for the lying douche bag that he's fully revealed himself to be. Of course we will still get the same Republicans doing their worst to protect their treasonous orange leader. Hopefully the onslaught of right, justice and the American way thrown at Barr by the Democrats, will actually cause William Barr, Donald J. Trump, and the rest of the lying treasonous mother trumpeters to crap in their collective underwear, as they all realize that all of them are gonna get locked up. Be in a real federal penitentiary or in a prison of their own making. At least I hope they all get ostracized by society and don’t one by one become paid talking head experts on our televisions and favorite online social networks, like Ollie North or Newt Gingrich.

So I now have to ask Americans, if in Trumpland the rule of law officially dead, or is it still at least on life support, hoping to survive this horror show we are all suffering through? If I asked the liars on the right, they of course would say all of the Democrats are sour pusses who are still upset that Hillary Clinton isn't our President. They're all sore losers. Well you know where you can stick it, to those who agree with that version of the story. If watching Trump’s AG’s testimony in front of the Senate doesn’t worry any democracy loving Americans out there, nothing will. Actually using words sounding like they came right out of Richard Nixon’s very own mouth, Barr tried to brush aside his own treasonous and impeachable actions, as he continued to help our current commander-in-chief to gaslight our nation. William Barr pretty much testified under oath, that the President of the United States, any President, not just Trump, is above the law. That with a snap of his fingers, as if he was Thanos and had absolute power over everything, a President can decide to end any investigation into him or her, or I guess that means anyone, that he decides to. Somehow now, according to William Barr’s interpretation of our Constitution, a President of the United States in his viewpoint is a King, or probably more to the religious fools who follow an orange jackass, their God! I mean they talk about him as if Donald's the third coming. have you seen the pictures of Trump walking on water, for God's sake. And you know what, watching what Trump has done over the course of his campaign and now his presidency, the comparison to Thanos, actually makes sense. Doesn’t it feel like at least half our nation has transformed into mindless soulless Trumpeters who don’t seem to realize, what happened in Germany in the 1930’s with Adolf  could actually be what we are living through now. And yes, I went there, heck somebody has to.

So now according to Barr, any sitting President can end any investigation whenever they like. Just as Barr promised Donald in his ‘pitch’ for the Attorney’s General gig, when he from out of left field delivered from the depths of Hell his ‘I figured out how to save your ass, 19 page job application pitch. Trump’s new volunteer with the plan, was then voted in by a straight Republican Party majority vote, even though watching the hearing made it played to see that if he hired, things could go really badly, really fast. This should have been apparent to even the blindest of people, and I am not talking eyesight. Who couldn't see that Barr was the wrong person for the job who was being put into place, to save Trump's bacon. Unfortunately everything Barr’s done since handing in the application sounds like it was outlined in the pitch itself. Except of course for all of his lies, deflections and downright treasonous responses and actions on behalf of Donald since getting the key to the Attorney General’s office. 

Witnessing the Senate hearing on television was eye opening, then after wards seeing the clips of it again online made what we all witnessed even the more shocking at how obvious William Barr is being. As he point blank lied under oath, selling out our democracy to help cover-up his president’s treasonous demands  and activities. It was maddening watching as nothing questionable Trump or his associated had done, was bad enough for William Barr to even bring up. He as well as any of the Republicans, who made it their mission to  protect Trump. None of Trump’s considerable conflicts of interests seemed to matter to Barr or them. None of his many obstructions of justice mattered to the patriotic flag waving bible trumpeting republicans at all. Donald's many tries at ending or at least hampering the many investigations that were occurring during the last few years was no big deal. Trump asking others to lie for him in regards to his own criminal activities, according to them was such a nothing. 

Robert Mueller discussed all of these items in great length and with great detail in the his report, which they would know, of course, if you had read the report! Which apparently only Democrats, real reporters, and patriotic Americans thought would be the logical next step in the process of discovering if people associated with our political system, were bad. I mean after two years, wouldn't you think people who were pro Trump, would want to know if their leader was a false God? If Trump was aided, assisted, or was in bed with a foreign person, government official or whomever might have helped to install Donald J. Trump into the presidency? So now that the Mueller Report was available, even if Redacted, wild you think they would want to learn what the investigators had uncovered. So one would think that would be next, am I crazy? Especially if our very democracy is in jeopardy, and if everything looked as if the person who is currently is our President, was aided by others in shall we say many questionable ways. Especially when that person in power who is being investigated, acts guilty all time, and does everything to attack and shut down the investigations on a daily basis. Plus if they had actually read the report, which funnily is part of their jobs, they would have found that Robert Mueller had in fact investigated, discovered, organized, and set up, the report so that the Attorney General could hand over the full report to the Congress, so they could decide what legal actions were needed to be done. Which is exactly how the system was created to work. What's maddening in all this is when Barack Obama was President, it was the polar opposite, as anything and everything real, imagined, conspirator or out of someone’s ass was treasonous actions, or impeachable sins, with gleeful threats of prison time a constant talking point about Hillary Clinton, because of her vile server, her missing emails was the worse scandal since Watergate.   

Not surprisingly it turned out William Barr’s hiring did in fact signal the end of Mueller’s Investigation, as some had feared and I actually wrote about in a previous Neilizms. Boy, who couldn't see this one coming. You replace the current Attorney General, who refused to shut down the investigation, after finally firing the previous one because he refused to end the investigation years before and had recused himself for it. So he placed Willam Barr into power, who had already signaled what  was to come. A few days in, he shut down the investigation and declared Donald J. Trump was actually under a witch hunt as Donald had expressed, and Trump was finally vindicated. I might add, to those who accused Trump of crimes, well time to pay the piper. You are now the criminals in our midst's, and now Lindsey and Mitch will go after your pathetic Trump hating, Democracy loving traitors. It's time to shut down all talk about what happened. That's right people, let's forget the past, and lets only discuss what a great job Trump has done as President. Look at how great our economy is going. Just disregard how he’s destroying Democracy every day a bit more, how the rule of law is clinging to life, and of course all of his and the other trumpeters treasonous activities. 

If there is a bright side in the perpetual, every worsening nightmare, apparently this stunt Barr and Trump are trying to pull, might finally be the wake up call to the doubters and fearful. Seems more and more likely that it's about the right time to start those Impeachment hearings, and I for one second that idea. During his confirmation hearing, the Democrats gave William Barr every chance to recuse himself, since obviously there were conflicts of interests by the score. But sadly the Republicans currently with the majority in the Senate, showcased that finding the truth was the last thing they were trying to do. The collective disregard of his sins of the past, or the little fact of how he was chosen to protect their leader, and their own backsides. Our democracy, the truth, and our next election isn’t on their minds, except in regards to how they can lie their way back into power once more. And this latest display during the the Senate hearings, by the trumpeting republicans double-downed on the horror show that they themselves have allowed to fester into what's more and more transforming our nation into the second coming of The third Reich. As we’ve seen over the years, the Republicans never actually ask a single question about Russian’s attack on our Democracy if it at all connects Trump with the attacks. They make it sound like its completely ridiculous, 'come on he's Donald J. Trump, he's a great builder'. Each time new evidence comes out to showcase that the ridiculous actually occurred and is still occurring, their denials of any Trump participation becomes more and more absurd. At least they admit we were attacked by Russia, the problem being they refuse to do anything about it, besides what the now proven under oath liar Sarah Huckabee Sanders' has come out to lie about. Some Republicans talk a good game, but they all side with Donald in the end. They all vote almost every time on a strict party line for any of his wishes into reality, while at the same time Donald has private over one hour video chat conversation with Putin, probably discussing the plans to do a do-over in 2020. 

Sure they go after Russia, but somehow, Trump’s hands in the pot always gets overlooked. But all they’ve done since we discovered Russia hacked our last presidential election, even after it became real and not some unbelievable plot twist from a cold war novel, is cover up for the Trump’s crime syndicate. And they did it once more during the Senate hearing with William Barr as several of them seriously should now resign for I would write pretty much spitting on our Constitution. By ignoring the criminal and possibly treasonous activities by Trump and a number of his associates, in regards to a foreign power seeking to overthrow our way of life, and instead spent all of their time attacking the investigators who dared go after Donald and friends.  

Committee Chairperson, Lindsey Graham, who was running the show, besides outing himself, by revealing that there were portions of the Mueller Report that he never actually read. Wait let me repeat that, he was the Chairman of the committee, yet he skipped reading the whole report? Really? I guess that would explain why none of his questions had anything to do with reality! Instead he went off on the FBI agents, who remember lost their jobs, because they tweeted love notes to each other, for the sin of dissing Donald. I guess Lindsey forget we already had hearings on the two, they already got punished, fool. Which is what gets me so agitated with their constant 'lock her up' chants. Hillary Clinton was already vindicated, lets not forget her 11 hour testimony, you know the one where she never got upset, cried, whined or committed perjury while being questioned by the most heinous soulless liars in political history. Remember haters, James Comey declared her innocent, if not as clean as his high and mighty ethical brain could handle, she was cleared. After he pulled the stunt twice. But her clearance never mattered to them, they still want to get her for crimes they keep making up. There's got to be something, no one can be that great a human being, so let's keep going after her till Hell freezes over, damned if their searches winds up destroying our very Democracy. 

The Republicans never go after the people who actually committed the treason! On a lighter side, what was hysterical to me was as Lindsey was rereading old tweets, practically giddy salivating over how disgusting these treasonous democrats were. But what he was reading sounded a heck of a lot like the things he himself said around the same time in February of 2016 about Donald, “I’m not going to try to get into the mind of Donald Trump because I don’t think there’s a whole lot of space there. I think he’s a kook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.” How come Lindsey isn’t being accused of treason, oh that's right, he’s blowing the Donald on a regular basis, or is it the other way around? I presume the parts of Mueller’s report that Lindsey or William skipped, were the parts that showcased what treasonous mother trumpeter’s Donald J. Trump and his band of evil henchmen really are. Simply put, when Lindsey slipped about skipping at least some of the report, I’m sorry the Democrats and even one or two of the Republicans should have pounced on Lindsey when they got their chances to question the now confirmed perjurer. He didn’t read the report? He didn’t read the report! I’m sorry, Lindsey, you must resign your chairmanship of this committee, and really, you should put in your resignation letter to the Senate as well. How dare you. I'll add one more sentiment,  that others have said, what would your supposed good friend John McCain say about how you are performing your sworn in duties.

So a short recap on why right now, at least for me, William Barr, is the most hated man on Earth who isn’t named Trump. Just like Lindsey, Trump’s personally chosen AG, the highest law enforcement officer in the land, didn’t read or at least look at some of the evidence that went into Robert Mueller’s report. Which means when he was making probably the most important legal decision in decades, of his life, and didn’t peruse the entire investigation he failed at his job. He glanced at it, with obviously preordained feelings about it. I mean it took him two whole days to read everything? Sit back, see the picture and then decide that there was nothing there? This decision to tell America that Donald was not found guilty by Mueller, is supposed to end the entire incident. That's it, it's over. That we were just supposed to take Barr's word for it, because he had been declared by the powers invested in him by Donald J. Trump, that in all practical purposes Trump was vindicated. 

So Barr came out, much like James Comey did when announcing with Hillary Clinton. but instead of saying that there weren’t enough to arrest Trump as James had said twice altering the course of history. William Barr came out with his 4 page summary, and pitched that there was nothing there. That the whole investigation found nothing, and the Trumpeters have run with it.  Immediately attacking the Democrats for their witch hunt, and actually demanding apologies by those who accused Trump. Then almost 5 weeks went by, till the Mueller report was finally released. But before doing that, Barr once more, came out, and pitched how innocent Trump was. How Mueller had found nothing, which was why Trump wasn’t already in a cell, as his face faded from orange, while his outfit now matched Donald's favorite shade at the tanning salon. Once more the Trumpeters screamed for joy, and shouted his innocence, even after the Mueller report finally dropped, and to the amazement by most, and the shock by none who believed Trump was a treasonous charlatan, it turned out nothing William Barr pitched about Mueller’s findings were true. His pitch and his summary, didn’t reflect anything at all that is inside the pages of the Mueller report. But sadly the Trumpeters keep pitching that the Mueller report cleared Donald, disregarding whats actually in the report, but merely echoing the words trumpeted by Donald and his lying treasonous followers. Obviously now we know why, because they haven't read the report, Barr's gambit is working. People would rather listen to a lie, from liars, then believe that their President and his minions could be treasonous actors in the greatest con ever perpetuated in American history, if not the world.

For the most part, during the hearing it felt like I was watching a loop, as the Democrats would ask actual questions, and every freaking time, William Barr tried not to answer them. It is rather amazing whenever we get any of the liars associated with Trump up on the stand, their hearing, forgetfulness and outright lies are worthy of the Guinness Book of World Records. Either acting like he hadn’t heard the question, or in my opinion, actually more like he's a fumbling idiot pretending to have dementia. Then every time it was the Republicans turn, the world once more transformed into a bizarro backward universe. As they one by one attacked the real traitors in our nation, no not the trumpeter's silly fool, but those who want Trump removed from office for his treasonous crimes. The scariest part for me in the entire hearing was when Barr testified that a President, any President, in charge, can end any investigation into themselves at any time. So as Donald has said all along, he could’ve fired anyone investigating anything into anything that involves him, the king, which I now presume he is officially called while walking around the White House in his PJ's, even though they haven’t said it out loud in public yet. Wait election day is coming, if he wins … 

The only thing that made watching the lying obvious soulless William Barr and his buddies in the Republican Party worth sitting through at all was seeing the Democrats showcase once and for all that yes Virginia, we still somehow could get out of this nightmare eventually. Amongst those Democrats were several running for president who showcased why our nation would be very lucky to have any of them get the gig. Especially Kamala Harris, who personally I think is genius at prosecuting witnesses during Senate hearings, and who, through her questioning prodded William Barr into admitting that he hadn't read the full evidence associated with the Mueller Investigation. Oops. Which after wards made her declare that the man, whose titled our Attorney General, but who is acting like a Defense Attorney for the President instead, should resign his post for dereliction of duty. Plus listening to Senator Cory Booker’s take down of Trump's current Attorney General during the hearing, as he queried Barr how all of the ‘issues’ covered in the redacted report, were simply tossed away as nothing, in Barr’s summary and his current testimony in front of the Senate, aw well as his public statements in regards to how innocent the Trumpeters all are. As I watched Barr try to side step the questions, I had the revelation that he possibly didn’t read any of the stuff that Robert Mueller could have entitled in the Mueller Report ‘Attention Congress, yup Donald J.Trump did it, I just can't write that, because that's not in my jurisdiction, and by the way his minions helped’. 

Of course the joke in all this is, Trump has now come out attacking all of the Democrats in the committee who are running for president as using the Barr hearing for their own political purposes. Ha ha ha ha ha. One would say after you put in an Attorney General to save your bacon, and attempt to cover-up the greatest theft in American political history, you saying that the Democrats are playing politics is pretty hypocritical, while others might add outright outrageous, while adding a few expletives. 

While the nation is still grappling with the ramifications on every thing and what the truth really is, or even now if should we impeach the President or just impeach William Barr. To add madness to the insanity, it's now come out it turns out that Robert Mueller is upset at how William Barr’s mischaracterized his report. That twice he wrote letters to Barr complaining, that basically Barr was lying his ass off at the expense of two years of really hard investigative work. That they actually had phone conversations or meetings about his issues. Seems Mueller is pissed with Barr coming out like James Comey and acting all high and mighty. Right now there is a running battle on if or when Robert Mueller will testify in front of the House or the Senate, or in front of the public.

Apparently, it takes less than one term of a President’s tenure, to totally destroy the supposed democracy that's still left in our nation. Can we finally admit it, the Republicans simply don’t care about the truth, facts, or anything. All they want is power, screw the pain others might suffer for their greed. After watching the Senate hearing with Barr, that revelation I felt. makes it abundantly clear. If Donald J.Trump gets a second term, this time it would be the American people who are to blame. I get that the republicans are the agents who are leading Trump's treasonous actions. But sorry, we gave George Walker a second term after he attacked the wrong nation and set us on an eternal war, while practically imploding our economy into another Depression. Sadly, Trump's attacks on Bush and Cheney's actions in regards to the war, is the only thing Trump might have said that was at all true during his campaign. Which is why when he said it at the debates, it didn't end his candidacy, right then and there, as many pundits thought it would. Remember many of us knew Bush had attacked the wrong nation, I personally figured if someone would do that, he would never get elected again. Especially after the way he got in, in the first place. Stupid me. It actually made me sit up and take notice with Trump, which was when I said to myself, oh oh, this could actually happen. But when anyone brought that bit of negativity to the Bush's 'Mission Accomplished' storyline, especially when it was actually happening in real time, we were attacked as unpatriotic and in some cases like the Dixie Chicks, their careers were practically ruined by the machine behind the seat of power. 

So now, to actually elect Trump in again, a person who showcases everyday that he's not up to the job, or in the least is at all interested in it, except when it comes to getting what he wants. A man who pretty much is showcasing how easily it is to transform our democracy into his dictatorship, especially when one of the political party's running our nation, is in on the crime and the cover-up. While at the same time the party in power all seem to have way too many connections to a foreign nation, which is the same nation, Mueller outed as the ones who attacked our country. So if Trump somehow gets in again, this time, that would be on the American people. Yes you. So Americans what do you say, do you want to live in Trumpland for the rest of your lives? Or do you want to return to living in America, the home of the brave, the land of the free? It's on you, and who you believe and who you eventually vote for. I for one know it would definitely never be a person named Trump.

WHO COULDN’T SEE THIS ONE COMING, THE FIX IS IN AS TRUMP’S HANDPICKED AG WHITEWASHES MUELLER’S REPORT, BY ATTEMPTING YET ANOTHER SCAM TRYING TO SAVE HIMSELF FROM HIMSELF

How obnoxious can they get, as Republicans now attack anyone who dared go after his orange unholiness as the real traitors, but in their rush to celebrate and assist Barr’s cover-up, it appears they’ve completely forgotten the convictions and all the opened cases still ongoing … and reality itself

SO LET’S GET THIS STRAIGHT, DONALD J. TRUMP HAS NOT BEEN “EXONERATED” no matter what you’ve heard, or how loud they shout it at us. Or as opposed to everything you keep reading and hearing everywhere, by practically everyone, on all sides of the aisle. Point blank, Robert Mueller did not come out and report in any way that Donald J. Trump was innocent of anything. Please people, quit saying that Trump is now in the clear. Already we are hearing on the Republicans side that all of his suspected crimes either never happened, or aren’t really that bad. You know the ones, that at first never happened, then other people were involved in, not him, to you should speak to my attorney, to so what if he did it he can't be indicted because he's the President. So just forget any of his crimes ever happened. Says them. At least that's their story, and they're sticking to it. Now they're trying to pitch the old 'lets just go back to the more important problems facing America' the best way possible. By attacking President Barack Obama, and the should be 45th President, Hillary Clinton, because everything wrong with our nation today, is on them. So now they keep telling us that he’s in the clear, and that he hasn’t done anything because William Barr, not Robert Mueller, wrote a 4 page term paper. Giving us what he wants us all to believe was pretty much what was written in the as of now unseen and unknown Mueller Report. And boy from the reviews on the right and Donald’s elation, so far it appears Mr. Barr probably will be receiving an A+ from his leader for writing a truly historic work of fiction. 

We, none of us, that means everyone besides Mueller and Barr, have a clue how many pages are even in the Mueller Report itself. Meaning how many pages did Bill Barr have to get through to make such an important and hasty decision. Or if you do know the page count, should I ask you, do you have Intel that nobody else has? Has WikiLeaks released those pages to you? If not, if they haven’t and unless you are a fly on the wall in Barr’s office, simply shut your traps and wait till we learn the truth... please. If you listen to most of the talking heads discussing the Mueller report, its amazing how many of them have given us the page counts of it, when that information alone hasn’t been officially given out. In fact, on MSNBC, on ‘The Beat With Ari Melbar’ Ari had a bit discussing this very fact. Simply, the page count of the Report should correspond to the page count of Barr’s summary. So a 4 page summary of the report might seem less corrupt if the Mueller paperwork was say 300 pages or so, as opposed to what others have thought a more logical page total for an investigation that ran for over 2 years. So if the page count ran 1300 - 1500 pages, one would assume Barr’s summery would also be longer than a measly 4 pages. So to those who keep spewing it, quit coming out and telling us things that aren’t real. Unless your job is to officially lie to us, either report the news or shut the… you know what up. Quit gas-lighting the American people, we have Donald and his minions for that. In fact, least we forget so soon, several of them have gone, are going to prison, or are still awaiting sentencing for lying. So whomever is sharing comments like Trump is now cleared, innocent or whatever the terms they’re using, quit it. Stop trying to get everyone to just forget about the last 4 years of our lives, so we could get on with the business of watching Trump and his monsters systematically tear apart everything great about our nation. Like his out of nowhere sudden decision to once again try to kill off Obamacare. This of course happening at the same time Donald is pitching that the Republicans are the party of health care. Talk about gas-lighting! Just like during the last election campaign when Republicans came out of the closet as the real saviors of preexisting conditions, while putting bills up which would destroy the law and the rule in it. So I guess its just another day in Trump-land.  

Let's at least for this paragraph, okay, a few sentences at most, give them the benefit of the doubt, so that I can swiftly shoot down the lies. Just go with it. Thanks. Here we go: So now that the Trumpeters have supposedly gotten the decision, that they’ve been praying for, they now demand the rest of us, who are still living in reality, to disregard everything we already know. To completely forget all the unfinished questions, everything, no I am not joking. So sit back for a moment and try to add up the number of crimes and possible treasonous actions. All the verbal assaults, or the racist commentaries, all the lies, and we are supposed to just forget everything, otherwise we are just being sore losers. We are so far gone that we can’t admit it to ourselves that there was no crimes. That it was just our hatred for the Donald, caused by Hillary which made us all so sick in the head. 

We the doubters, wanted to wait till we heard from Mueller himself before we would give Donny a break. Well according to them, Mueller has spoken, Ta-da, and he has cleared Trump of everything. See we told you there was nothing, it was all a witch hunt. Accept of course all of the witches on the left who fooled us all. BELIEVE US! So Democrats give up the ghost, you were wrong, join us and make America great once more. At least that’s their pitch. They want all of us to believe it wasn’t Barr’s summary, it was all Robert Mueller. We the liberal Democrats were hoodwinked by the treasonous fake news that the liberal media has been coming up with. We are the ones being brainwashed, not them. If you listen to them it was the Democrats and Hillary Clinton who colluded with Russia. Please someone explain that rational to me, I mean only a fool eating insects in an insane asylum could possibly believe that, right? 

So we, the Democrats, not them, are now the real traitors. Because we dared to question every lie that they come out with, on a way too consistent almost hourly if not more basis. So flush with supposed ‘exonerations’ the trumpeting Republicans, are now going after everyone who dared even suggest Trump and his buddies did anything shady to get themselves into their seats of power. According to Sarah Sanders, anyone who dares to ask any questions accusing Donald of criminal actions are the ones committing treason, and they could get death for it, as she so gleefully put it. Sometimes I see the demon in people’s faces, just the way the light hits their profiles, today I saw her’s. Her smile sent chills up and down my spine, and not in the good way. What a ghoul, once again Sarah did the job of Trump’s interpretation of a White House Press Secretary. As always, instead of coming out and informing us of the facts and what was on Trump’s agenda that day, she not only lied to the American people, but this time Sarah practically threatened those out there, who accuse Donald of the worst treasonous acts in American history. Or at least the majority of Americans who haven’t been turned into zombies covered in orange Kabuki tinted makeup. In fact that threat, by Sarah, goes right along with yet another attack against our First Amendment Rights. Apparently the Trumpeters, running the White House are now requesting that any voices of dissent, you know the press, congressional and political leaders,  and talking heads that are not subservient to the Trump effect, are to be taken off any and all future telecasts. Seems in Trump-land those voices are to be censored. Those patriots, are now officially the enemy of the state, as he’s called them since he began the campaign. I’m just wondering when these flag hugging hypocrites will take our Constitution, burn it up, and replace it with Donald’s unholy commandments... I can already see the television special playing on a loop.

Now in Congress, the Republicans, led by Devin Nunes no less, talk about a monster and a half who deserves to already be serving his sentence for crimes against the state, are in attack mode. Again, disregarding the fact that nobody knows what Mueller reported, are obnoxiously trying to force Trump’s accusers out of their seats of power and possibly even out of politics completely. Luckily for us, one of the attacks was captured on video and people got to witness, Republicans trying to remove one of Democracy’s strongest advocates fight back. You see, The House Intelligence Committee’s first hearing since Mueller completed and handed his report to Bill Barr, went off the rails almost immediately when the Republicans in the panel demanded the resignation of Adam Schiff, the committee’s Democratic chairman. Kevin McCarthy, the Republican leader, compared Congressmen Schiff to Joseph R. McCarthy, no I am not exaggerating. And he wasn’t the only one to try to smear him. He also tweeted out: 'Nine members of the House Intelligence Cmte have just called for Chairman Adam Schiff’s “immediate resignation as chairman of the committee.” For two years he misled the public on collusion, and the American people no longer have faith in his ability to lead. He should step down.' 

Really, he should step down, even though we don’t know anything yet, really? Excuse me, what? Are you insane, like Donald appears more and more likely to be? Hm, sorry, no. Well, Adam Schiff’s response is one for the ages, and one I've already listened to a half a dozen times. Honestly I have to stand listening to his words, almost wanting to salute the American flag and shed a few patriotic tears. One which once again showcases why we the American people are very lucky to have him on our side. And it should be played on a loop,  and blasted in giant boom box speakers directed straight at the White House, till the rats vacate the building. 

“You might say that’s all OK. You might say that’s just what you need to do to win. But I don’t think its okay. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. And I think it is unpatriotic,” And yes, I think it is corrupt, And evidence of collusion.” 

Now my only fear is, as we’ve seen in the past, when Trump and his minions go after people, somehow those people get royally screwed, like in one of those gangster or spy thrillers. Fingers crossed what happened to AL Franken and to so many others, doesn’t happen to Adam Schiff and all the other real patriots out there trying their best to save our very Democracy.

Okay now let's discuss those doubters out there who have already sadly fallen for Bill Barr’s say so. The sad thing is people already believe Trump’s been cleared of everything, even those who fully believed he did everything days ago. Instantly, I guess it was all a nothing burger? I’m sorry, give me a break. Wake up people. The immediacy of belief of Trump's innocence is startling, but sadly trying to convert those now believers in Trump’s version, will take a lot more proof. You know the actual report, with documented believable evidence to sway them. Which of course is Trump’s plan in the first place, create a fog of distrust, I mean if you’re now not 100% how can you demand the man leave his job, right? 

I had this long Facebook chat, the day after the news of Barr’s summary release, with someone who believed it was now over. He had given in “but the Mueller report said…”, and yes I tried my best to answer, explain and practically vow that in the end, the truth would prevail, and the entire picture that Robert Mueller reported would be revealed. Then we all will cry or cheer depending on the answers and where it takes us. Sadly nothing I could come up with could sway him. So at present, one less person to defend our democracy in its darkest hour is available. Its unbelievable and so, so very sad to me how quickly people just cave in. But I have to believe when the truth comes out, he, like million of others will be slapped awake to what really happened, and hopefully that means Donald will be toast. Sadly because of the never ending obstacle course justice has had to run to slay the treasonous monsters in our midst, too many of us have begun to lose our faith in our political system. After all, look at how the Republicans are doing everything in their power to circumvent it. Each time they do, they smile sarcastically at all of us out there, just trying to stay above the water, as we watch as the cheaters on the right, one by one, destroy a small part of our world.

People, perhaps we should slow down this fast moving sham, put the shred the wool that’s being thrown all over us, before the Trumpeters roll all over our democracy. Please let us get back to reality and not just what they want us believe. So one more time, the only people that know what is written on those pages are two in total, Bob Mueller and Bill Barr. And once more, since we haven’t a clue what he actually wrote, except for the words that Bill Barr cherry-picked to use, perhaps we should wait to declare Trump a victim of this massive conspiracy drummed up by the evil liberal Democrats, that they are now trying to characterize them as. Donald’s hand picked choice, Bill Barr, who was voted in on a Republican Party majority vote, gave out his four page summary of what he wants us to believe Robert Mueller came up with. Remember, this is a man who wrote a 16 page job application, pitching for the Attorney General job, expressing his view that a sitting President can’t be indicted. And whoops out of left field he get’s chosen by Donald to be his next Attorney General. Do you remember what he said on the stand, when questioned what he would do? Well I do. Surprising only fools who actually believed a word he spewed, he now has done exactly what he said he wouldn’t. Total transparency, in a pig’s eyes! Just like every other puppet that has sat on that chair in front of the House or the Senate has done. They sit, they tell us what is acceptable enough not to be thrown out and tossed in the trash with Donald’s other more obvious losers. Then they get enshrined on a Republican majority vote, no matter what vile crime or fowl item that gets uncovered. Or how utterly wrong and ill equipped they are for the position, and once in, they do exactly what they said they wouldn’t. Maddeningly, for whatever reason, over two years in, we still hear both sides act like this time will be different. How stunned they are at Donald's unprecedented moves. Who would have thunk it? It’s like every time Susan Collins is going to vote. She’s a great talker, until she takes the vote, and then she votes not the way she pitched she would, and it oops on a loop… ugh! How many broken records do we need to listen to before we hear the truth, or before we go deaf? So apparently the fix is in. The monsters have won. And all is lost. Democracy is dead, Just like in Camelot.

Of course to throw an even bigger wrench into this game of wannabe dictatorship Donald is playing, what’s not being talked about by pretty much anyone is the fact that William Barr’s son-in-law, Tyler McGaughey, is now currently working in the White House advising Trump on legal matters. Hm, what? Why isn't this front page news How much do you wanna bet, the father son-in-law duo, helped cook up this latest Trump scheme to save himself from that long green mile... and meeting Lucifer sooner than rather later.

Now according to the talking heads, we should just forget all about the biggest crime this nation has ever faced. All his illegal acts. Before and during his presidency. All the racist garbage, all the attacks, because “Mueller said their was nothing there”... aren’t they the same liars who said they knew no Russians. That there was no meeting. That the meeting was about Russian adoptions. It was a nothing burger. They had no business in Russia. That President Barack Obama was an illegal, and Hillary Clinton was dying, and a bigot, not Donald. Forgive me if I don’t believe them now, or ever again, if I ever had. Honestly, nope I don't think I've believed one word any of these trumpeting Republicans have ever said, and I plan to keep it that way.

I’m sorry, so let me get this straight, we are supposed to believe a partisan Republican, who from out of left field, decides to give Donald a way out of his issues, what six months ago. Barr wins Trump’s heart and the job and once chosen and given the gig, he refuses to recuse himself from working on the case. Even though his pitch opus should automatically tell him, nope, I got to do what Sessions did, and make the boss man very angry. But even though those who make these suggestions, told him he should step away from it, recuse big time, because it would look political and taint the entire investigation, Barr refused because he knows better.  Simply put, that’s why Donald chose him for the job in the first place. Then less then a month into the gig, out of the Trumpeters greatest wish fulfillment fantasies, Bill Barr comes out and gives Donald a shiny new ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card, that he’s crafted, over night. And I can’t scream it loud enough that, sadly yes, I told you so. I knew this would happen, but no, Barr is an honorable man. Really? You expected Donald to choose an honorable person? Have you been watching, Longstreet? Simply put it looks fishy. The Democrats who for the most part knew this was coming during Bill Barr’s hearing, are sadly stuck in their minority role, trying to stem the takeover of our Democracy long enough to make it to the next election. Trying to keep us a Democracy long enough so we the citizens of these United States will still be able to have a say in what type of nation we have in the voters booth. As we’ve quickly discovered the people suggesting he recuse himself, their advice was warranted, because Barr’s decision to try to end the entire historic event in one big swoop, reeks of a scam. A whitewash, and the biggest political crime since Trump’s very own decision to work with Russia to make Vladimir’s dreams come true. I mean who couldn’t see this plot twist a mile away?

And now because Bill Barr says so, with no one else, possibly even himself reading Mueller’s report, he comes out and tells us in a 4 page version of pretty much what his original 16 page opus pitched, that he believes Trump isn’t the treasonous criminal that all the noise points us to. Really? So are we to believe he actually read any of it? I have my doubts he read any of it. Perhaps as some have opined since Barr and Mueller go way back, maybe they shared a sirloin steak, while Mueller filled him in on the case. That would be something I guess that will be queried when either or both are on that hot seat soon. Point blank, this is another unprecedented move by the Trumpeters that should never have happened. The Congress is supposed to take his report and then decide what the verdict is, like a grand jury jurist, its not Barr’s decision to make. It’s Barr’s job to suggest, but not decide the fate of whomever is being investigated. Now, almost a week into the Bob Mueller hand off to Bill Barr, and Trump’s Attorney General’s decision to end all of it in one big swoop, happily it appears isn't a slam dunk. The longer the Trumpeters keep trying to hide and cover-up Mueller’s Report, the more people are waking up to the reality that we in fact don’t know anything about what’s in the report. The few crumbs we were given, actually leave us with even more questions than we had before we knew it was being finished and handed off. So until we see Bob Mueller back up what Bill Barr concocted. Sorry, not one of his conclusions can be considered written in stone. It should be thought of more like its stuck in the muck of the swamp in our political world that Trump has dredged up since entering out political world.
