Judge T.S. Ellis, III once referred to himself as “Caesar in [the] Rome” that’s his courtroom though, by the jurist’s own admission, it’s a pretty small place. An exquisitely educated Reagan appointee, since 1984, Ellis transforms himself from mere mortal into mini-deity every time he dons a black toga to judge the accused arrayed beneath his bench who must contend for favor.
 
Donald Trump praised Ellis, recently, for the scoldings he’s been giving prosecutors from the special counsel’s office during the trial of Paul Manafort, ex-chair of the Trump campaign. Manafort is accused of evading taxes, money-laundering, and a passel-full of other financial crimes, mostly having a nexus to unreported income earned from pro-Russia work he undertook for the Ukraine’s former president, Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko, who fled to Russia before the axe dropped.

It's part of a pattern.

In the past three years, there seems to be an increase in tweets and Facebook posts that claim that the “real civil rights” political organization is the Republican Party and the real white Supremacists, are the Democratic Party.

This week, I happen to see this type of suggestion or overt proposition on social media, more than usual. It seemed to follow the spat between Donald Trump and Lebron James.

One Facebook friend posted a video that presented this narrative—that despite its claim for caring for the fate of the minorities, the Democratic Party have supported the worst in our society as it relates to race.

 

trump laughA new NFL season started last night, and there were more misguided National Anthem protests. Sadly, last night, several players used the opportunity to express their grievances against the country, instead of respecting a great symbol of the United States.  

Last night, two players on the Miami Dolphins team knelt while another one raised his fist in protest. Another two members of the Philadelphia Eagles raised their fists.In Jacksonville, four members of the Jaguars stayed in the locker room while the National Anthem was played.

Before turning to the topic on everyone’s mind, the tweet that’s burning up the airwaves, the next person Donald Trump should fire is the misbegotten soul who failed to install portable air conditioners aimed at the president during his Saturday rally in Ohio. Trump said it was around 110 degrees in the smallish gym where he spoke and the heat ruined his new suit. The makeup artist who slathered meltable pancake on the president’s face, also, must go. Dislike Trump all you want, but he’s still president and should appear looking presidential, no matter how he acts, or what he says.

For years, The New York Times has been “failing,” according to President Donald Trump. It’s once sterling reputation as “the newspaper of record” has diminished significantly in recent years. The unadulterated liberalism of the newspaper and changing habits among readers has led to a massive decline in print subscribers and advertisers. While The New York Times has supplanted that revenue with digital subscribers and advertisers, the overall impact of the newspaper has certainly declined.

Donald Trump says Paul Manafort is being treated worse than Al Capone. A little history is in order. The fella who ordered Al Capone taken down was President Herbert Hoover who was tired of impudent gang murders in Chicago by America’s most famous gangster. Treasury Secretary, Andrew Mellon, who received the order, directed his treasury department to gather intelligence about Capone’s finances and, thereafter, history was writ.

The judge in the case of U.S. vs Capone, James H. Wilkerson, ran a rocket trial on the 23 charges facing Capone. It began on October 5, 1931 and concluded on October 18th of the same year with a guilty verdict. Ironically, Wilkerson bears more than a resemblance to special counsel Robert Mueller.

"Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts or evidence.”

  • President John Adams

The three greatest recent human rights disasters are: Ukraine, Syria, and Libya.  In each nation countless tens of thousands have been killed, wounded, or displaced.  America played a key role in all three. 

In the case of Syria, 370,000 named victims with estimates of 470,000 total dead. Nearly 1.88 million have been injured and 13.5 million displaced by the war.   This of a pre-war population of 22 million.  The war has raged seven years beginning in March 2011.

Call him “Everyman.”

For that is who Thomas Markle, Sr., the estranged, increasingly noisy dad of Meghan Markle, really is.

Thomas Markle is one of us.  He’s got three kids, one of whom just married into the British royal family.  He’s got a pension. He’s got a silver Volvo.  He’s got a penchant for McDonald’s and KFC cuisine.  He’s got a testy ex-wife.  He’s got Social Security.  He’s got a heart condition.  And now, he’s got a fan club.

Yup—I kid you not.

In the age of President Donald Trump, American journalism has died and it has been replaced by Democratic Party advocacy. No longer are there standards for “objective” reporting in news departments at broadcast networks, cable networks like CNN or MSNBC or mainstream news organizations. Liberal commentators are masquerading as “journalists” and it is being displayed on a regular basis. In the aftermath of the President’s news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, anchors on CNN and MSNBC announced their outright disgust with Trump’s performance, discarding even the pretense of objectivity.

 

trump star sign 8

The Hollywood Walk of Fame draws visitors from around the world to stride atop stars emblazoned with the names of celebrities, old and new, big and small. Tourists can pay an imaginative entrepreneur toting a box of gold metal letters that can be laid over a faux star with their own names that’s photographed as a memorial of their pilgrimage to the irresistible tackiness of Hollywood Boulevard where, if lucky, Al Pacino can be glimpsed ducking out of Musso-Frank Grill.  Among the stars on the baked L.A. street is Donald Trump’s.
