America, as I know it, died yesterday right in front of our eyes when Attorney General Bill Barr displayed his fealty to the man who put him back into the national spotlight.
Also falling before our eyes were the lessons of Watergate.
What has kept this country above all other nations has been our judicial system integrity and our governmental checks and balances.
Barr mutilated those and his fellow pro-Donald Trump loyalists applauded at the bloody sight.
“The truth isn’t the truth,” according to Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, on Sunday. This echoes Trump’s recent statement to veterans, "Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what's happening” and blamed “fake news” for the confusion. Author Ambrose Bierce had this to say on the topic, “The truth (with the comfort it brings) is open to all who grope in the night, crying for wisdom’s holy light.” Unfortunately, the light Giuliani and his boss have shed on Russian interference in U.S. elections has been diffuse to date, despite U.S. intelligence’s high beams.
