A Response to the Religious Right, the American Taliban

Our government was built to allow people of all faiths and inclinations to live together. It was specifically to avoid the persecution from other Christian faiths. The United States can, of course, through the political process change any facet of our government. But it should be clearly understood that the attempts to put religion above our civil government are contrary to the basis of our Constitution and the spirit of our country.


Do the investigations matter – part 2: Pardons and discrediting the DOJ.

Now it is clear that we also have to worry about the presidential pardon as a way out. He wants to know if he can pardon all the people of interest in the Russia-gate affair. He wants to pardon Flynn, Manafort, everyone in his family, and more amazingly, himself.

The White House and the Department of Justice: conclusion – Money Laundering

Hopefully you noticed that the scale of this problem is in the billions of dollars each year. Many, many lawyers, bankers, and real estate moguls are involved in this. Even when they are paid only small percentages in these transactions, their profit is in the hundreds of millions. Why was Jared Kushner talking to Russians during the campaign?

Oh, But He’s Made America Great Again

The US shot down a Syrian jet, Russia has threatened to retaliate if we enter a certain Syrian airspace and cut cooperative defensive communications. How has the US President responded to this threat? He hasn't said a word to the... Continue Reading →
