    • Scenarios For America’s Political Future
      Let’s run thru the most likely possible victories in the upcoming federal election and consider what they mean for America’s future. Put them in 4 baskets. Trump wins. He does more bad stuff, situation continues to get worse, American post-WWII style multilateral hegemony and trade order takes huge hits. Biden or Harris win. Harris will […]

Who will it be?

We’re supposed to know who Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is going to indict for Russian interference today and judging by the way Trump tweeted his panic attack yesterday, it might be someone close to him.

My bet is it’s Manafort. That’s kind of like Mueller Lite but it could be just the first of many dominos. And unlike Russia, we don’t usually torture people in order to get them to sign false documents. Nevertheless, my guess is that since Trump doesn’t hire people with integrity or character, whoever Mueller indicts is going to break as soon as he’s deprived of his iPhone.

We shall see.

In the meantime, the White House is engaging in a smear and confuse game over Clinton and uranium that is so preposterous and evil that it’s difficult to understand how people could actually believe it. And yet they do.

But watch what happens when anchor Joy Reid does her homework and has nothing to lose. Caution: Joy uses actual journalism skills to question her guest. Sensitive Fox News viewers may find this disturbing:

See how easy that was, Jake Tapper? Do it just like that.

And Brian Stelter sums up exactly what’s going on. [insert same tiresome disclaimer for Fox News viewers, yes, I know I’m wasting my breath because the color of the sky is different in their world but let’s just call this a public service]

Now, it shouldn’t be necessary for Stelter to point this out. It should be OBVIOUS to the people among us who can think and sort through misdirection on their own. *I* didn’t need to hear this and it’s not because I’m a liberal Democrat. It’s because I spent 23 years in a lab and learned to tell important information from unimportant information and listened to enough presentations to know when someone was baffling me with bullshit. So, I’m kinda fireproofed. And many of you reading this just know when you’re being lied to and don’t defer to authority JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE AUTHORITIES.

But there are some people out there who regularly cannot tell the difference. And they probably aren’t going to listen to a single thing Stelter has to say. That’s who we have to worry about.

Yes, it is probably a waste of our time. But we have to do it anyway.

  1. They are all going down. This Papadopoulos guy appears to be a big catch for Mueller (his resume was very, very thin (laughable in fact) to be a foreign policy advisor on the trump campaign, hmmm… what else was he bringing?)
