    • The Espionage Act Is Bad Law Even When It Is Used Against People I Despise Like Trump
      Back in June 2019, the New Yorker wrote an article lambasting the Espionage Act. The George W. Bush Administration pursued several government insiders for leaking classified information, but it was the Obama Administration that normalized the use of the Espionage Act against journalists’ sources.

Epiphany Season

So, I was walking around in Princeton, minding my own business, when who should I spot sitting on a stone bench but… Darragh Murphy???

{{double take}}

OK, it wasn’t entirely accidental. There was a reason why we were both there and I’ll be telling you more about that in time because we will need your help. But let’s just say that she’s just as charming and pretty in person and she has lovely green eyes. What was amazing is how easy to strike up a conversation. In fact, I think it was hard to shut us up. It was well after 10 before I drove her to the train station. But let’s just say that we weren’t the only ones swept up in the discussion. This election season has been one revelation after another. We keep peeling back layers of the onion. This is not to say that there is a single core at the center of what has transpired. There are many moving parts creating a synergistic whole that explains the rise of Obama.

There is a separate synergism at work in our counter movement. Darragh and I swept another player in the mix tonight. It’s new and good and exciting.

So, while you are all pondering what the hell I’m talking about (hint: “Snapping“), take a look at this retelling of the Lord of the Rings. How many of us are Tolkien fans? Hmmm… Coincidence?
