Bug is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, March 25, 2019. Our friend, Bug, is in the kitchen preparing Eggs Benedict for our enjoyment. I am beside Bug mixing up a strong batch of Bloody Marys to kick off the morning meal. It's not just a meal, it's a celebration. The Mueller Report is out and the president is in. Please join Bug this morning for breakfast and a chat. Wear a party hat!

It's Over

Thanks so much for dropping by this morning. Pop and I are so happy to share this long awaited moment with all of you. The Mueller investigation has concluded. The Trump campaign did not collude with Russia, much to the dismay of all the naysayers and haters. Many Trump supporters were suspicious of the Mueller team, The group of lawyers were all Trump haters, so Trump supporters' fears were well founded. In the end, this highly partisan group came to the conclusion that President Trump did not collude with Russia and that the evidence did not justify bringing obstruction charges. That is the great news. The not so great news is that the lunatics on the left will continue to hammer home the lie that President Trump is guilty.

It's a Party

Those that support our president are relieved that the investigation has concluded. Those that hate him are in mourning yet again. Their Trump Derangement Syndrome has spiked this morning. They are circling their wagons and vowing to continue to investigate the president. The fake news contingent is in tears. MSNBC"s Joy Reid has already suggested that a cover-up of the Mueller report is underway. Rachel Maddow sprouted tears as she read the news on her teleprompter. She suggested that the long awaited report was not the end of the Russia investigation, but the beginning. MSNBC's tingly leg Matthews was enraged when he heard the news. The trouble makers in Congress are no better. Adam Schiff vows to subpoena everyone. Cummings will ask for documents and conduct investigations. Nadler is positive the president is guilty. He has the proof. What none of these so-called "servants" of the people recognize is that Americans are sick of them. Two years is a very long time to endure their unsubstantiated rantings. Two years and 25 million dollars is too long and too much to bear. They have caused this nation a great deal of harm, and they ought to be held accountable for what they have done. The left should pay for their lies. The American people have been victimized by unhinged haters who should have their collective behinds retired for all time. They are poisonous, and we need an antidote now. If there truly was justice in this world, the left wing media would collapse and the Schiff and Nadlers of this world would be booted out of Washington. In the meantime, we should turn off their broadcasts and write letters of protest to the fakers in Washington. It is time those elected to serve us start doing their jobs. They weren't sent to Washington to play Dick Tracy. Solve some of the pressing issues facing Americans or get out of town. If you won't go willingly, perhaps voters will seal your fate when the time comes.

Get To Work

From this moment on, the American people will be expecting forward movement when it comes to those they elected to office. President Trump has accomplished an impressive list of great things. He did it ll despite a Congress that worked to stop him from solving the nation's problems. There is no longer any excuse for playing "cops and robbers." Roll up your sleeves and solve our nation's border crisis. Roll up your sleeves and fix our crumbling infrastructure. Roll up your sleeves and help our veterans once and for all. Roll up your sleeves and address the growing opioid crisis in a meaningful way. Roll up your sleeves, get to work and grow up. The American people are running out of patience. If you don't get the message, you will in 2020.


Bug's Song

The bugs crawl in

The bugs crawl out

They're just like us

In many ways

They want the left

To go away!

      Dear maven,

      The left is stuck on one note only, and its getting pretty stale. All they have is collusion and obstruction. What they are incapable of recognizing is that they are the colluders and obstructionists. I'm off to the Inn. I crave the company of people I respect.

If they did, they would be relieved that Trump was exonerated, so that we could go on and accomplish the work that needs to be done.

      Here is my comment that I have been sharing with the left.

      ""Mueller's investigation ended without any charges of ...

      [Search domain www.macombdaily.com/opinion/mueller-s-investigation-ended-without-any-charges-of-collusion-or/article_50cb7128-a2ab-5d3f-a935-5d4aebb7f5f0.html] https://www.macombdaily.com/opinion/mueller-s-inve...

      Mueller's investigation ended without any charges of collusion or conspiracy with Russia. ."

      It doesn't matter what Mueller said, and you keep forgetting that the Memo from Barr and Rosenstein said that it wasn't the any FBI policy on a sitting president that prevented Mueller from indicting president Trump for obstruction, it was that Mueller did have any evidence that could meet the burden of reasonable doubt.

      scott

      "He said "... COULD NOT ESTABLISH ... CONSPIRACY" which means he HAD EVIDENCE of Collusion, just not enough to establish the crime of CONSPIRACY. Does the yelling help you understand the actual truth?"

      b:

      "In Order No. 3915-2017, Mueller was appointed with a specific mandate, to continue an investigation started by James Comey into Russian interference in the election:

      (a) Robert S. Mueller III is appointed t() serve as Specia] Counsel for the United States Department of Justice.

      (b) The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confinned by then-FBI Director James 8. Corney in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including:

      (i) any links and/or coordination bet ween the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and

      (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and

      (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).

      (c) If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters.

      At the March 20, 2017 hearing, Comey described the investigation as relating to election interference:

      As you know, our practice is not to confirm the existence of ongoing investigations, especially those investigations that involve classified matters, but in unusual circumstances where it is in the public interest, it may be appropriate to do so as Justice Department policies recognize. This is one of those circumstances.

      I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts. As with any counterintelligence investigation, this will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed."

      B: The fact is that it is not important or relevant what Mueller made as an opinion, the fact is that he didn't indict because he didn't have evidence to convict. Say it anyway you want but that is the result."

      Dear Brad,

      Mueller really is the kind of guy who goes in for the kill. If he could have gotten away with it he would have charged the president. The president said he was innocent and that's the way it turned out.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      3 weeks ago from now on

      One thing here I’m still not comfortable with.

      One theory why Trump didn’t have the perpetrators of the silent coup investigated before Mueller was done was that his lawyers thought it would look like obstruction of justice.

      Another theory could be that if evidence was found by Mueller or Mueller and his crew of democrat lawyers decided to fabricate a case against Trump, Trump could use an investigation of all of them as an ace in the hole to dissuade Mueller from proceeding on indictment of him or making bogus charges since during the course of the investigation all the unbelievable traitorous FBI activity has been revealed.

      Either theory now begs the question will Hiliary, Obama, Comey and all the rest involved in this silent coup and other criminal acts be investigated and charged or since Trump was exonerated is he just giving lip service to charging these people to boost his supporters and as usual time will just slip by with nothing being done to a one of them?

      Until we can change the voters from the knee jerk party sheep to the intelligent country before party mentality, the party's will destroy the country. It should be country before party for both parties.

      The US is a zero sum world, it all adds up to 100. The problem is that both parties have a different idea of how to make it 100, So, one party builds it there way, and when the other party gets its turn, it take that 100 and reconstructs with the opposite of the other party.

      This has no bearing on which party is right or wrong, but the focus is that it is always in turmoil. Currently, the 100 projected by the left looks very dismal and destructive, but they have their party sheep locked down. The republican have some of their sheep in the democrat pen.

      How far does a seesaw move forward?

      Who ever thought the right to choose

      Meant murdering children is excused

      Lots of reasons not to choose

      The party of states that turn blue

      The traitors who tried a silent coup

      To bring down the guy we choose

      To save the nation from the refuse

      This is probably what you found

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_United_States_H...

      I looked some of it over and why opinion is that the democrats won the house not because of the double the open seats of the democrats but because of the success of the democrats in influencing the election by falsely claiming the Trump, Russia not tried but influenced the election.

      The democrats continual attack on Trump during the campaign, after he won, and since then has in my opinion was responsible for the house victories.

      The second part is the democrats and their continual talk about women resulted in the high wins by the democrats.

      In California, the dems won big and the liberals in the state apparently want more illegal aliens. Only 7 California reps won.

      What should be the deciding line between campaigning for an election, and making the campaign by influencing the election.

      All of the investigations and controversies against Trump including Kavanaugh, and the 5 Trump investigations, and especially allowing Mueller to continue through the mid term elections influenced the election in favor of the democrats.

      Mueller should have stopped when the IG issued his report. Forget Russia influencing our elections, when the democrats are much better at it.

      And as I said before, the dems continuing the cloud upon Trump after the Mueller report is going to influence the 2020 election. It is time for the republicans to investigate the democrats. The democrats created all these investigation when they weren't in control, then what is stopping the republicans?

      Brad, you're adroit at researching political goings on. In looking at the 40+ republicans who retired the real number seems to be 28 excluding those who lost primaries or ran for other offices- still a lot but i can’t seem to find how many of those retired seats went to democrats and if it would have made a difference in losing the house in 2018.

      Why couldn’t they get re elected and retire later even before their term was up? Cause they don’t care about the country, they didn’t want to be under Trump.

      It’s so obvious if Mueller wasn’t on a witch hunt targeting Trump then wouldn’t the first person to investigate for Russian Collusion be Hiliary who paid for a false dossier Mueller knew was false and was sourced with Russians and was actually used to affect the outcome of the election? Yet he only went after everyone associated with Trump but not on any evidence of collusion but other unrelated things.

      Either missed or ignored by Vladimir:

      You are mixing up the findings Vladimir. President Trump was totally exonerated on the false charge of colluding with Russia.

      The statement from Mueller that he cannot indict or exonerate President Trump on the separate charge of obstruction was addressed by both Barr and Rosenstein when they agreed with each other that there was no case for obstruction.

      President Trump has been exonerated of all charges whether the angry left likes it or not.

      BTW, Vladimir, since the collusion charge was found to be false, are you at all interested in who put all this in motion by making that false charge? After all, the trail apparently leads back to none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

      Brad---Boy, I am trying to think of any effective antidote to this compulsive nagging. Do you do it with all your friends?

      O.K., I think I got one. Take it three times a day, doesn't matter on empty stomach or after your usual cocktail that's settling your nerves.

      Each dose contains:

      1) My humble confession that I was terribly wrong.

      2) There is a ton of useful info I could learn from you to get educated in this extremely important science of American politics.

      3) Trump is a godsend to America.

      4) Dems are a short for "demons".

      5)"Trump" is the strongest card in some games, especially in games of politics.

      6) You guys are geniuses, and I bow to your objective sticking to the factual reality.

      Like every medico would tell you: Take this medication for a week, then, if it doesn't work, we'll try something stronger. Like, maybe I'll make a special video with me singing the American anthem.

      Beyond that, well, you may need a professional help to snap out of this totally unnecessary kicking the crap back and forth between the two of us.

      Have I told you yet that I like you as a person? You are persistent, and that's a good quality.

      As for me, you can count on more and more of responses like this. I don't get upset, and my responses don't come from that. During my 4 decades of meditating, I also cultivated a mastery in self-suggesting, so I can produce that blissful combination of alpha and gamma brain waves at will. In this case it means that my mind automatically converts all this criticism into something hilarious.

      Isn't that funny, your last name happens to be Masters, but the mastery is mine.

      ------------------------------------------------------------------

      "Like, what about those several dozen bona-fide psychiatrists who are risking their careers, if not licenses, by publicly claiming how Trump is not only unfit for presidency, but also potentially dangerous to the public?"

      B: This is from the CNN and anti Trump playbook. You need to judge a president by what they do and what they accomplish.

      ------------------------------------

      "You see what I mean? If even some coherent, objective, impartial shrinks can't be trusted --- then, by some sheer logic ---who is more officially sane in the populace to deserve our trust?"

      B: This is just wrong. It is not logical, it is of little real value, but it is how the anti Trumps attack Trump.

      ------------------------------------

      "Please, don't take me wrong. I am simply trying to make some logical sense out of both sides of that battlefield and their claims. With my sticking strictly to an impartial logicalness, "

      B: To make logic, you need a foundation of facts, and evidence. You are taking unfounded accusation made by the opponents of the president, and declaring them facts. Then you try to build on it, and you claim it is logic, but it is just an emotional unfounded attack on our president.

      You are as impartial as Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi.

      I honestly have a hard time understanding when both sides say things like: "American people want this-or-that". How the heck can either side say that, if only an approximate half of the population may agree with them? (By the way, it's one of the things I also noticed in this post).

      B: You have only displayed the anti Trump side, where is the pro Trump side? This half population which seems to elude your logic is based on Democrats and Republicans are diametrically opposite in the ideology and that is why congress can't compromise, and many times end in gridlock. And loyal party voters permeate the party ideology into the population.

      ----------------------------------------

      To me it looks like an incredibly massive fortune-telling business, with no one really knowing anything for certain, just a crap being kicked back and forth ad infinitum from one camp to the other and back.

      B: That is politics, and you are a player for the anti Trumpers.

      -------------------------------------------

      I understand everybody's political sentiment, and yet I fail to understand how that national division is helping America to become great again. It's a wonderful country with great people, and you deserve better than that incessant bickering stretching from one president to the next. It's not a symptom of "freedom", but one of confusion.

      B: Once again, you are looking at it from only one side. The democrats not Trump divided the country, and so did 8 years of president Obama. This division existed before Trump. Now, you think you understand, but when you write it isn't coming out that way.

      The confusion is caused by the loyal followers of the Hatfield and McCoys , AKA the loyal party voters.

      --------------------------------------------

      With my sense for satire, I can so clearly envision the next prez getting the same treatment. Like the title of one of my poems says:"Most prosperous, but never satisfied".

      B: You could have at any time used facts instead of satire.

      "Brad -- All personal crap aside -- don't you think that you guys wouldn't have reacted with such a dark passion if my initial comment had not hit you with truth?"

      B: Apparently you don't understand.

      "Here I come again with my potentially uncomfortable logicalness ---more precisely with one of its famous principles saying: "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence"."

      This is not a truth. There is nothing logical about it. It is a vague, ambiguous, and doesn't reference anything to help it.

      ----------------------------------

      "Before I start applying it to Mueller's report, let me repeat what I said in my last comment some time ago: To me it makes no difference if Trump gets re-elected in 2020, or he gets impeached tomorrow --- I am simply playing with some irrefutable logic, while hoping that anybody reading it hasn't got their logic hijacked by their political favoritism."

      B: There is nothing logical yet, and nothing to refute. What you will do instead is use your political favoritism to try and change the facts.

      ----------------------------------

      "As for me being "Hillary who won't go away" -- I must admit, this is a lot of fun, otherwise I would have been gone by now. Try stopping with all nonsensical provocations. Try showing to me that my truth is not really your secret suspicion."

      B: This is a serious matter, not Corner Gas. You don't seem to have any place to go. Could you point out your truth, and compare it with my facts? Take your time.

      ------------------------------------

      "So, deprive me of having so much fun with you guys. Make me bite my nails and cry: "Where is everybody?! Don't you like hating me anymore?! Don't you like personifying your bitter ideological enemies in one Val?!" Hey, he was your chance to dump all your frustrations, even those private ones, to funnel them into this ridiculous online conflict!""

      B: Instead of using facts and making your point to support your whatever it is you are doing here, you act like a democrat. You are the one making it ridiculous thinking this was comedy central. You made the record clear, you are not here to argue points supporting your accusations.

      -------------------------------------

      "So, go away all of you Hillaries, and just watch me how I disappear.

      I didn't do anything to you personally to deserve your overcompensations for all that's politically eating you. Stop using this Val for your emotional dumping container, you are becoming way too obvious.

      Otherwise, imagine the big drop when I rev you up enough and then disappear. It's not easy to find another scapegoat, another shoulder to cry on.""

      B: Again, you continue with the democrat monologue. With the same time and effort, you could have given facts and real logic to make a point, and not a funny.

      ---------------------------------------

      "Now, about that principle. While I am totally accepting the possibility of Trump's being innocent (of collusion), Barr's short interpretation of Mueller's report is not exactly saying that. It goes something like: There is nor clear evidence of the President's colluding with Russia, but the report is not exonerating him."

      B: There is no evidence of Russia or Trump either separately or collectively of collusion, which isn't even a crime. And consider that the report is made by Mueller who spent tens of millions of dollars, and even influenced the 2018 election by continuing it through the election and five months past the election. A fact is once again, you ignored it before, that president Trump rejected Mueller for his old job back as FBI director. Then a few days later Mueller is appointed special counsel to investigate Trump. That is a clear case of conflict of interest. This is a CYA by Mueller for failing to nail Russia, or Trump for something that wasn't a statutory crime.

      ----------------------------------

      "For, people get easily over some nonsense, they just ignore it, and since I was not insulting anyone (like you did in the heat of over-reacting), there was really no need to come up with all that.

      Think about it. Try to be objective. Maybe you'll get to the truth that you are just cherry-picking from that crap pile of news -- just like Dems hot-heads are doing, while media is laughing all the way to the bank."

      B: I was objective and I gave you facts, but you ignored them. I don't get my stuff from the news, but apparently from what you say, you do. And I doubt that Canadian news favors Trump anymore that our news.

      ------------------------------------

      "Which makes me somewhat confused, as I see Trump triumphing over it. It's like we are happily packing for a day on the beach after the weatherman said: "While there is no evidence of an imminent thunderstorm, that doesn't mean we are about to have a sunny day.""

      B: You are totally confused. What it should mean is that after 3 years, 4 congressional investigation, and one DOJ investigation they all failed to find any evidence at all. Why was the FBI investigating Trump during the election and through his inauguration. They even had a year long spy Carter Page on it. Yet, they came up with nothing.

      President Obama had Trump people being spied on and then had Rice make their names public. None of this was warranted and none of it, yielded any evidence of wrong doing by Trump.

      ------------------------------------

      By now, many of you have already spotted much more "confusion" in me than that, so why not mention another detail from this awfully contradicting mass of information that the whole world is being exposed to, including us in the neighboring, friendly Canada.

      B: What is this information? You make a statement as if we should know what you are talking about here.

      Friendly, like a passive aggressive is friendly.

      Did you learn any history that didn't involve cowboys and Indians? For, if you did, you would know that there is a group of Slavic peoples in Europe, of which Russia is only one. Then you might deduct that Vladimir, or Wladislaw is a common name in all of them.

      And then, maybe, just maybe, you wouldn't write that here -- unless you wanted to send me a subliminal one about "every Vladimir automatically being an enemy of America".

      So, you are asking me "what you could learn from me"? Hmmm, I would say, a lot. But I am not volunteering.

      And then you are also mentioning again that there is something that I "should learn from you". Totally ignoring what I said that I am not one bit interested in particulars of your political soap opera.

      Breakfastpop --- Hopefully you are the last one to whom I owe a response here. Actually, it won't matter because I won't even bother reading further comments.

      No, I am not "opinionated about American politics". There is a big difference between giving a political situation a logical, impartial treatment---and taking a side by identifying ourselves politically--like you are doing. So it's you who has an opinion, I am just observing without any final conclusions.

      I could equally utilize logical reasoning in fields of nutrition, or religion, or psychology, or anything else for that matter. Let me give you an example. I think that we all have our biological individuality, and no diet should be prescribed as one-fit-all. It doesn't make me "opinionated" about dieting, but logical. If I had an opinion, I would be a vegan or something.

      Likewise, I can tell you again that Dems are not seeing Trump as exonerated, and it goes by the principle of "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence". Is it MY opinion that he is not exonerated? No. How the hell would I know? Where is logic in it, if in a few sentences later I am saying how news are not to be trusted---so how would I contend that---without trusting some news first?

      In one of my hubs I used that same logical principle showing how it fits religious discussions, where believers are defending existence of god by also saying: "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence"..

      In my original comment on your hub I clearly said: "To me it doesn't matter if Trump gets elected in 2020, or he gets impeached tomorrow." How more impartial should I have sounded?

      I was primarily emphasizing my confusion over the mass of contradicting news.

      As the result, you guys started calling me names, insulting me, twisting my words ad nauseam.

      And I am still saying to all of you --- because there is nothing more logical than this: NONE OF US KNOWS ANY FACTS, it's all filtered, altered, doctored, depending on who owns the news broadcasters, or who is paying them.

      How do I know?

      Because those news are coming "different". Countries of different religions are using the same math--because that's something to KNOW"---but then they reserve right to "believe" what they choose.

      Believing is not knowing.

      Politicizing is not knowing.

      Sorry for raining on your parade.

      Your analogy is based on the lie that he wasn't exonerated, ignores the fact there was never any evidence of collusion to start with but Obama, his administration used Hiliary's paid for totally false dossier colluding with Russians to undermine a duely elected president, in short orchestrate a coupe. And you want to liken this to because it's a clear day with no thunderstorm In sight one could come along? You are sick.

      AND AGAIN, I did not say that Trump was guilty of anything.

      And you guys make me laugh by preaching to me about Hillary and all those colorful characters.

      Like Rhet said to Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind":

      "Quite frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn".

      This because at more than one of my hubs and comments I have said I am a political cynic, with no political preferences.

      But here you go in a chorus---since I did not sing your favorite song, "I must be against Trump".

      I wonder how many more from that chorus will try to educate me, a "heretic", what I should believe in.

      Suppose I was wrong with a point or two in my comment. But, what really makes YOU right? Your belief? What FACTS do you KNOW, other than by cherry picking from that mess of information? Were you there to "know" anything? What does ANY OF US know for certain when politics is in question?

      B: How about my saying that I just created for you

      "If something doesn't exist, then don't look for it".

      And Will is right, the whole Russian and the Russian Collusion to influence the 2016 election began with Hillary Clinton and the DNC.

      They alleged but it was never proven that the Russians hacked the DNC email servers. There is no prove because the refuse the FBI's request to look at their servers. Who can refuse the FBI from investigating, apparently only the democrats. The FBI didn't ask Cohen when they went in like storm troopers and confiscated all of his documents and computers. They didn't even honor attorney client privilege which had been the strongest of the privileges, But not now!

      Then Hillary and the DNC had a foreign agent create an opposition paper to find dirt on Trump. This retired British agent Christopher Steele that compiled information from the Russians in Russia but that was OK because these weren't the Russians we were looking for in the Trump investigation.

      All of the US Intelligence agencies used this same Russian Dossier, it even has Russian in its name, to get a FISA warrant to spy on an American Citizen, Carter Page. They got it based on that Dossier that on it said that the contents were not verified and may not be true. Yet, the FISA not only granted this warrant, they extended it 3 times. For a year there was surveillance on Carter Page to get in with Trump and his organization. Yet, after the year, which extended into Trump in the White House, they found no evidence. Why, because it didn't exist. And the Trojan Carter Page horse was never charged with anything criminal, or anything at all.

      What I sense is that you are a pseudo American democrat because what you say in your comment comes right from their playbook.

      Get back with me when you have some facts you got on your own.

The real troublemakers are Clinton, Comey, Lynch, Brennan, Page and so many others who conspired to bring down this president. Trump is doing a fabulous job for this country despite all the hatred from the psychotic left. His list of accomplishments is recognized and appreciated by Americans who are intelligent and not blinded by bias and hatred. The media is corrupt, so the good stuff gets buried. That has to be corrected, because a corrupt press is very dangerous to our liberty. In any event, Trump will get another four years. The left is free to jump off a bridge if they can't handle it.

      You are mixing up the findings Vladimir. President Trump was totally exonerated on the false charge of colluding with Russia.

      The statement from Mueller that he cannot indict or exonerate President Trump on the separate charge of obstruction was addressed by both Barr and Rosenstein when they agreed with each other that there was no case for obstruction.

      President Trump has been exonerated of all charges whether the angry left likes it or not.

      BTW, Vladimir, since the collusion charge was found to be false, are you at all interested in who put all this in motion by making that false charge? After all, the trail apparently leads back to none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

      Tsadjalko --- The only thing I see from your response to my comment is a wish to hurt my emotions. Even if I wanted to get even, I am not a shrink, and I don't know enough about you to do it. I have no need to hurt your feelings. You are probably a fine person who simply finds my reasoning "sick and derranged".

      We live in a free world, and right to an opinion is granted to everyone. I wish you all the best.

      Val, I have no evidence you are a pedofile but I think you should be investigated by the government with all their resources and have the media for three years say you are a pedophile and when the investigation finds absolutely no evidence for being a pedofile I am going to insist that isn't proof you aren't!

      I am appalled that even you can't see how sick and derranged your reasoning is. I suppose you'd be satisfied to still be suspected to be a pedophile?

      Here I come again with my potentially uncomfortable logicalness ---more precisely with one of its famous principles saying: "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence".

      Before I start applying it to Mueller's report, let me repeat what I said in my last comment some time ago: To me it makes no difference if Trump gets re-elected in 2020, or he gets impeached tomorrow --- I am simply playing with some irrefutable logic, while hoping that anybody reading it hasn't got their logic hijacked by their political favoritism.

      Now, about that principle. While I am totally accepting the possibility of Trump's being innocent (of collusion), Barr's short interpretation of Mueller's report is not exactly saying that. It goes something like:

      There is nor clear evidence of the President's colluding with Russia, but the report is not exonerating him.

      Which makes me somewhat confused, as I see Trump triumphing over it. It's like we are happily packing for a day on the beach after the weatherman said: "While there is no evidence of an imminent thunderstorm, that doesn't mean we are about to have a sunny day."

      By now, many of you have already spotted much more "confusion" in me than that, so why not mention another detail from this awfully contradicting mass of information that the whole world is being exposed to, including us in the neighboring, friendly Canada.

      Like, what about those several dozen bona-fide psychiatrists who are risking their careers, if not licenses, by publicly claiming how Trump is not only unfit for presidency, but also potentially dangerous to the public?

      You see what I mean? If even some coherent, objective, impartial shrinks can't be trusted --- then, by some sheer logic ---who is more officially sane in the populace to deserve our trust?

      Please, don't take me wrong. I am simply trying to make some logical sense out of both sides of that battlefield and their claims. With my sticking strictly to an impartial logicalness, I honestly have a hard time understanding when both sides say things like: "American people want this-or-that". How the heck can either side say that, if only an approximate half of the population may agree with them? (By the way, it's one of the things I also noticed in this post).

      To me it looks like an incredibly massive fortune-telling business, with no one really knowing anything for certain, just a crap being kicked back and forth ad infinitum from one camp to the other and back.

      I understand everybody's political sentiment, and yet I fail to understand how that national division is helping America to become great again. It's a wonderful country with great people, and you deserve better than that incessant bickering stretching from one president to the next. It's not a symptom of "freedom", but one of confusion.

      With my sense for satire, I can so clearly envision the next prez getting the same treatment. Like the title of one of my poems says:"Most prosperous, but never satisfied".

      The Mueller report couldn't have rejected it more, then if it was the Trump report. They don't want the truth, they want impeachment of Donald Trump.

      As for the republicans, not a single investigation by the FBI on Comey, Mueller and all of the people that conspired on the job to do a political coup on president Trump.

      That was spineless, while all the time not turning off the politically motivated investigation on the Russians, Trump collusion myth. I don't see much spine in the two years they were in control, and I see no hope for any more spine now.

      What was the purpose of the IG report when no criminal investigation resulted from it?

      The political scene from now until the election is going to look like a devastating California fire, out of control and it usually stops or gets under control when it runs of things that can burn. Then it is followed by torrential rain that sweeps house, streets and hillsides.

      A good start would be to criminally investigate Comey and Mueller for their conspiracy to lie to congress. This would then include investigating Rod Rosenstein because both he and Mueller had conflicts of interest in appointing Mueller. Mueller had days before Rosenstein appointed him been rejected by president Trump for his old FBI director position. Then he loads his team with anti Trumpers. Rosenstein fired Comey, Mueller's 'Robin', and then he expands the Mueller investigation scope to include things like obstruction of justice because Comey was fired.

      The 2016 DOJ, State Department, FBI, NSA, and others needed to be investigated and purged, but the republicans must have a dog in that investigation that could bite them. They just didn't act at all. Look at how impotent they were in the Judge Kavanaugh hearing.

      I am sorry Pop, but there is something really smelly about the way that the republicans are dealing with the democrats, and how they don't protect the president.

      The republicans look like the story of the three musketeers protecting the King. Are there many republicans acting to protect Trump?

      With all the disarray and confusion in the democrat party, they still can attack the president and the republicans. The republicans failed to unite around Trump because both the democrats and the republicans know they will have their veil of being for the country and the people lifted. That will show they don't care about it, they only care about the party. Both parties have failed to move the country and the people forward because they have a political seesaw. A seesaw only goes up and down.

      Sorry, for this tirade, but this could have been the best four years for the country and the people. But, it looks more like a huge oil spill in the ocean.

      Good Morning T,

      I too wonder what will happen when Trump is no longer in the White House. We are going to need another Trump, and that won't be easy. See you at the Inn.

      Good Morning brad,

      Yes, we will see how much of a spine is left in the Republican Party. The answer had better be plenty. The American people deserve to see the true colluders and obstructionists punished for causing this massive fraudulent investigation. The Dems are losing their minds about the report's findings. The truth is that they went bonkers when Trump announced that he was running. What's happening to them should be studied by mental health experts. There is nothing normal about their reactions. They are sick, angry, uniformed, lying psychos who need medical attention. Some of them need prison. See you at the Inn.

      I agree and that is why I say that the democrats have successfully created a political diode. They can do and say anything without fear of repercussions, while they can persecute, call names and even blame their opponents for doing the same thing they themselves do.

      The democrats are like the urban people that can taunt and attack a Quaker because they know they won't put up a fight.

      The parties are two sides of the same coin, and that coin is dropping in value.

      Denial, ehhh sounds like mental illness to me Brad. What do you think? are they all delusional, are we witnessing a mass hysteria? Isn't it absolutely obvious that no sane person would believe a lie for 3 years and then when an expensive exhaustive investigation by the top investigators of the country prove it was nothing but a delusion not let it go?

      And don't count on the Republican party for anything - any one of them will throw Trump under the bus in a split second if they think he or anything he has done that the press can make hay of might keep any one of them from getting re-elected.

      Trump is the only one that Americans can count on to keep his word and clean the swamp and when that is no longer apparent God help us.

      I just been at some of the anti Trump hubber articles. They are in total denial that Mueller's report was not a smoking gun. So they are putting up their own smoke following their democrat shepherds in DC.

      They sound a lot like the day after the 2016 democrats stunned and disoriented with reality. These democrats live so much in their virtual reality bubble, that when the real reality crashes their virtual reality they just get emotional, and not in a good way.

      They keep spouting the same old anti Trump venom bites, and continue to talk as if the Mueller investigation only took a rest, and they will soon be back on the case.

      They say things like how many times can the republicans ask Hillary to be investigated without finding any evidence. The answer is as many times as they keep investigating Trump without finding any evidence.

      Congress is incapable of policing itself and the only thing that will get their attention is losing elections. But, sadly most of the voters are sheep, and think that changing government will make things worse.

      The republican party is more afraid of Trump because they know he didn't create their mess, he only inherited it from both parties. Both parties have DC the way they want it, and they are afraid Trump will change it so they have to work for the country and the people, instead of the party.

      We will see in the time between now and the election how much of a spine there is left in the republican party.

      Dear T,

      Rush is right, but I do believe we have reason to celebrate. Of course, the insane left will keep on whining, but their audience will dwindle. They bore me to tears! See you at the Inn.
