Good news! At least it’s good news for American citizens
who would like to know what’s transpired. Maybe not such good news for those
who perverted the system. President Trump, on the advice of his Atty. Gen. has
decided to declassify the information related to the Russia probe. Let’s see
who leaves town now that the we’re peeling into the really smelly part of the
said it was a “stunning move” that was “unprecedented.” Well, so is the
scandal they are at the core of. As expected, the spin started quickly with the
ludicrous Adam Schiff risibly calling it a clear abuse of power. The hue and
cry that is coming will tip you off to who is worried the most. This ought to
get good. I’ve already told you to make sure you have plenty of popcorn.
This might explain why Walk Don’t Run by the
Ventures was my favorite tune in the 60’s. A study has found that smart
people listen to instrumental music.
It might be a good idea if the European Union joined
the U.S. in presenting a unified front to address Chinese technology theft. Forced

This is a story
that I was only fleetingly aware of. It appears to be a gross example of
prosecutorial misconduct as well as an indication of the desperation of some of
the Mueller team to find what they ultimately concluded didn’t exist, a channel
into the Kremlin. This is an interesting article and it appears that a gross
miscarriage of justice took place. For the sin of doing a jailhouse interview
with NPR, the government had her transferred from Alexandria, VA to a county
jail in Chickasha, OK, far from her attorneys. As Glenn Reynolds said in his Instapundit Post, For the
sake of the narrative, there needed to be a Russian spy, therefore, she was a
Rats Are Fleeing the Sinking Ship. Lots of finger pointing going on. As
always, Victor Davis Hanson is well worth a read. Excerpt: “So, how can we tell that the former accusers are now terrified of
becoming the accused? Because suddenly the usual band of former Obama officials
and Trump accusers have largely given up on their allegations that Trump was or
is a Russian asset. Instead, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew
McCabe and Rod Rosenstein are now beginning to accuse each other of wrongdoing.”
Tariff List Advertises Its Trade War Weakness.
“Unless Chinese leader Xi Jinping and his advisors are
completely incompetent, there’s only one way to interpret Beijing’s list of
U.S. products that will be slapped with retaliatory tariffs on June 1 if the
trade war with the United States isn’t somehow deescalated pronto: China
increasingly realizes that it’s playing a losing hand in the trade war, and its
counter-moves have been made mainly for public consumption in China.”
I’ve posted comments in the past about the boom in
West Texas. In
This Oil Boom Town, Even a Barber Can Make $180,000. I’m thinking of
heading out there with a bowl and a pair of scissors.
Facing a huge poll gap with Joe Biden, Bernie
has launched a cross-country hair-sniffing tour.
Another great example of how the media willfully misleads
its audience. Luckily, people are more and more calling them on it. Like this Tweet
from Dana Loesch.

Deserves Donald Trump. It took a human wrecking ball to get China’s
As bad as things are in Washington, D.C., we haven’t quite
reached this point, yet. On May 22, 1856 in the U.S. Senate, Rep. Preston
Banks (D-SC) used a cane to attack Sen. Charles Sumner (R-MA), an abolitionist,
nearly beating him to death. It was a “Breakdown of reasoned discourse.” Sound
familiar? I have to admit, there is no dearth of candidates in Washington who could
use a good caning.
I’ve always enjoyed P.J. O’Rourke’s take on things.
He’s written a piece titled It’s time to
make rich people uncomfortable again. He suggests that anyone worth over
$100 million be required to wear a top hat at all times.
I’m trying to work up some big crocodile tears over
this news. CNN
Continues Its Death Spiral As Ratings Collapse In Epic Fashion. What is the
world do they think is going to happen with “talent” like Brian Stelter and
Town Halls with Beto O’Rourke?
