floodgates smallWaiting for Paul Manafort to flip is like waiting for Godot. He’s never going to show up to plead, no matter how many eye-witnesses there are to his alleged financial shenanigans, frauds, and international hanky-panky. If Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants the inside story on the purported criminality of the ex-chair of the Trump campaign he ought to call Russian metals oligarch Oleg Deripaska who’d have a better story to tell, anyway.

trump 5th InPixioEver since Donald Trump officially entered the presidential race on June 16, 2015, the national news media has treated him with total disdain. It has been even worse since Donald Trump was elected President as networks such as CNN and MSNBC have devoted almost their entire broadcast schedule to attacking his personality, temperament and agenda.

NSCToday, the United States Space Council meets for the second time at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Vice President Mike Pence will lead the meeting, which is titled “Moon, Mars and Worlds Beyond: Winning the Next Frontier.” The focus of this gathering of government officials, national security experts and space entrepreneurs will be the ever-expanding commercial and scientific opportunity of the “next frontier.”

russia laugh InPixio“Laughing their asses off,” though a common phrase, took its place in the political vernacular when President Donald Trump used it to describe Moscow’s reaction to U.S. investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump didn’t say if this assertion was based on personal knowledge, or information and belief, but it’s untrue, whatever its basis. Russia knows that Robert Mueller is getting the goods on its meddling and things are going to get worse.

trump patriotBy now, it appears that President Donald Trump is admitting that Russia meddled with the United States elections. On Friday, Robert Mueller unveiled a sprawling indictment that traced exactly how this was done and perhaps, is still being accomplished.

fat putin smallRobert Mueller fired a shot across the bow of the U.S.S. Donald Trump with a preliminary set of indictments that detail some of the efforts by Russian actors to influence the 2016 election. The indictments should lay to rest many of the purely partisan efforts to discredit the Russia investigation. Though just one element of the dissection of Russian crimes against the United States, the indictment criticizes, besides unwitting Republican foils, U.S. banks, PayPal, Twitter, and Facebook, among others, for being duped by foreign actors who used purloined identities, including social security numbers and driver’s licenses.

mitt don2In 1968, Michigan Governor George Romney failed in his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination. This presidential aspiration was shared by his son, Mitt Romney, who attempted to win the presidency four decades later. In 2008, Romney lost the GOP presidential primary battle to U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), who was subsequently destroyed by Barack Obama in the general election.

spy trump2Anyone who has ever worked for the U.S. who had to get to their office through three sets of locked doors is outraged by the fact that White House staff without permanent clearances are handling classified materials the way a paperboy handles the news. Anyone who ever wondered if the peace lecture they attended with a classmate would affect their clearance application is shaking their head. Anyone who ever felt outrage at Edward Snowden, or Chelsea Manning, is fuming over what’s going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

trump planDonald Trump's White House has introduced his infrastructure plan which he hopes will not only further fuel the economy which is currently running on high-turbo horsepower but to also build the country's sorely needed infrastructure fixes.

The general concept is to invest $200 million dollars of federal money and combine it with state and private investments.

bunny trump2It just doesn’t stop. Donald Trump and now his attorney, Michael Cohen, who paid what appears to be hush money to Stormy Daniels, just seem to keep on giving. Like the energizer bunny, I suppose, it just doesn't stop.

As much as the media might want to move on to the state of the economy and infrastructure, the Trump team just makes it impossible.
