fbiWhoa!!

October surprise.

No, not Russia courtesy of Donald Trump and Wikileaks.

The October surprise, the FBI.

Who'd have thunk it?

That "corrupt" institution, the FBI, that Donald Trump has railed against as he has repeatedly called the election rigged because the media, the Bankers, the national businessmen, the votes are "rigged", landed its October bombshell.

In a letter from FBI Jim Comey this afternoon, the organization announced it was "reviewing new emails". See letter above.

Of course, Trump had it wrong.  Today, he told his audience it was "reopening" an investigation.  Actually, the investigation has never been closed.

Should the FBI have taken this action only days prior to election day?  

My initial response is NO, not in the way it did.  I believe Coney and the FBI should have done it quietly unless there was some reason to make a public announcement.  If there is a need to make such an announcement, then, great.  Go at it.Indeed, iff

Also, if there is evidence that Hillary or anybody else did anything unlawful, the FBI should and must pursue the investigation.  But, when, there is only a three-paragraph announcement, in the middle of the most important election in my history, to recoin a popular phrase from our former Secretary of State, "does it make a difference" had they proceeded without giving one campaign an advantage over the other?

But, who knows.  Maybe tomorrow, we will get an FBI announcement that Donald Trump and/or Wikileaks and/or Roger Stone and/or Russia and/or Putin are being investigated for allegedly interfering with the American election process.

Should this occur, I am sure wee will se Donald Trump sing a different tune, his usual one--Everybody is corrupt, but him.

Whatever the FBI is doing and for whatever reason it is doing it, I respect its decision.  It is not corrupt.  It is full of professionals from top to bottom.

Says Pete Wilson of NBC News, as per tweet: According to Sr. officials say—During separate investigation “a device” led to add'l emails–not from Clinton

Who knows.  

For whatever it is worth, let us hope that the FBI can provide us some certainty whether Hillary Clinton is in any way implicated by this statement, sooner rather than later.   

America has a compelling interest to get to the truth and to uncover behavior that might be criminal.  It also has a compelling need to ensure that the election process is fair.  The more open the process at this time, whatever the consequences and whoever it might impact is warranted.  

The all-time election from hell, just got more uncertain.

As if we really needed it.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
