    • The Flynn Pardon Is The Right Thing To Do + Mishandling Russia
      So, Michael Flynn has been pardoned by Trump. His crime was lying to the FBI about talking to the Russians before Trump was inaugurated. Even a man like Trump can do the right thing occasionally, usually for the wrong reasons. It is entirely reasonable and routine for a President-elect’s advisors to talk to foreign governments. […]

All the truth you can eat

Worth mentioning:

Paul Manafort, convicted felon in the first of his two trials, was Trump’s Campaign manager.

Michael Cohen, who pled guilty to a bunch o’felonies, was deputy finance chairman of the GOP.

I don’t think Trump is the only Republican politician with something to hide.

Then there’s Mike Flynn, George Pappadopolous, Rick Gates…

Looks like we got ourselves a coven.

and then there’s this:

Jeez, she looks like a saint by comparison.

  1. A turning point. Whatever happens from this day on will be filtered through today’s events.

    Events that may be buried in the future news cycles to come, yet could not be more definitive for the long term.

  2. 1. Note that there were no “not guilty” verdicts. I would refile those 10 charges and keep the legal pressure (money!) on.

    2. I think Trump should be implicated in the bank fraud (HELOC loan) charge against Cohen. He took that loan as part of the CONSPIRACY with Trump for the hush payments..

  3. Guest “preaching” by Mojo Nixon. :mrgreen:

  4. Hey RD and everyone! From Bergen… our bus driver yesterday. a Russian immigrant asked the American guy sitting next to him, how trump was doing and this guy said everyday is different but he was doing fine(!) and the driver could not seem more incredulous; anyway we didn’t have the other news of the day yet by then. So… I am missing all the ‘fun’ and action there …

    • Bergen? Is that Germany or something?

      • Norway. Had another conversation with our taxi driver who was an immigrant from Bosnia and he didn’t think Bill Clinton helped. He said US started the war and broke that country. Anecdotal I know. The sense I get over here is indifference, sort of saying welcome to the world, you had it so good all these years.

        Saw an Icelandic movie on the way. It was about two children their mother, shown as single giving them up forcibly and the horror of orphanage and so on. Reminded me of Ingmar Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander. All of this got me thinking what America had accomplished – in a nutshell, it helped all people from the old world and old religions come to America and shed their deleterious norms and traditions and embrace something that is healthier, more productive and chase that American dream. That is the story and the spirit of America. Will we still have it after trump?

        • We waited too long to get involved in Bosnia and Rwanda. So, the taxi driver was probably correct. There’s a quote from Churchill that rings a bell. I’ll see if I can find it.

        • “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.”
          Winston Churchill

          We have a reputation.

          • Yes. Have heard that before. Maybe I am an optimist and gloss over bad things America has done. But with the first hand immigrant experience of my own, I can vouch for no other country in the world like I do for America and no other country I would rather be (other than India of course). Another anecdote- in Oslo, the taxi driver was Indian having lived in Norway for 50 years – he said he left India when he was 18 and could not get a visa for uk and went to Norway instead. I hesitated to ask if he was a citizen. Such a question would not arise if it were in America before trump.
