Reading the Mueller Report (Not)!

It’s easy! It’s fun! It’s snarky! It’ll put you in jail (maybe)! A FB acquaintance who probably doesn’t want me to name him put forward the following: It should surprise nobody that it’s probably going to take a court fight to get the full Mueller report on Trump and Russia (among other crimes) out of […]

Chelsea Manning to walk free in May

Chelsea Manning, the US Army private who blew the whistle on ‘collateral murders’ and other secrets the government would rather not address, has received a sentence commutation from President Obama and will go free in May. Prison was clearly killing her–she had attempted suicide, and it was clear that she would never survive the long sentence she was […]

Congrats to Obama and the DNC

This is brief–I was writing a long piece on the whole ‘fake news’ imbroglio and the word count was in the 2,500+ range so I’ve put it aside for the moment. This is a meme that covers things a tad more succinctly: Regardless of one’s politics, I think we all owe President Obama and Hillary […]

We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global […]

Late yesterday, Wikileaks unlocked one of its ‘insurance’ files. These files are the items that were supposed to be toxic enough to make the US government hesitant to take ‘extra-legal’ means to stop Wikileaks from publishing. ‘Extra-legal’ is code for ‘wet jobs’–There was and continues to be concern that the US is about to assassinate Julian […]

Sanders end-game and the DNC

Hillary Rodham Clinton is now the official nominee for the DNC. As Sting would say, Well, good luck to ya.  I knew last year that Bernie stood almost no chance of winning the nomination. But he finished far better than any runner-up since the presidential primary system began. And between the Arnebeck lawsuit, the coming […]

Clinton Wikileaks dump hits fan

Because we already have a totally hosed election season, Wikileaks made good on its threat to provide e-mail and other files ostensibly hacked from the Democratic National Committee regarding the Hillary Clinton campaign. In the end, over 20,000 emails were dumped including some 8,000+ attached files. Some show that the DNC was ALWAYS pushing for Clinton over […]
