James Comey, former FBI director, was considered to be contradiction, a riddle wrapped in an enigma. Now he’s a riddle wrapped in an enigma inside a Rubik’s cube. The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, today, called Comey insubordinate and called his judgment into question. There’s a lot of questionable judgment running around Washington these days, including forcible segregation of immigrant children from their parents at the border, fetes for a ruthless dictator famed for killing members of his own family, and alleged official self-enrichment that would make King Midas blush.
More turmoil in the White House continues to cast doubt on Donald Trump’s leadership. Start with the firings of FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson. McCabe’s potentially unfavorable testimony before a grand jury convened by Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, doomed him. Trump has now fired two top FBI officials, including Director, James Comey, to protect himself from Mueller’s Russia investigation.
What did U.S. Representative Devin Nunes know and when did he know it?
When the loyal soldier for President Donald Trump, Nunes, told the nation that the Democrats (DNC) and the Clinton campaign conspired with the FBI and the DOJ to obtain a search warrant and renewed warrants from the FISA court to surveil Carter Page for the purpose of hurting Trump, he put into the Congressional record and into the public debate, corrosive allegations of which he has not yet provided any proof.

Wait. Listen. Hear it? That squeaky, puckering sound you hear is the tightening sphincters of college basketball coaches around the land after last week’s revelations released by Yahoo Sports. One head coach has been fired, another is as good as done, dark clouds surround others and several assistant coaches have already walked the plank. The remainder, mostly innocent, are scrambling to make certain they know what their assistants are or are not doing.
With an increasing number of mass shootings in recent months, we are urged by law enforcement officials to keep an eye out. Report anything suspicious. “If you see something, say something” we are regularly told. The problem is, that in too many instances, the alarms raised by concerned citizens are falling on deaf ears.

Am I living in a parallel universe? Has the world turned upside down?
Back in the 1970’s the Washington Post released the “Pentagon Papers” secreted out of that agency by one Daniel Ellsberg. No one had ever dared up to that time to take classified information and release it to the public in the name of patriotism. He took substantial risk-informing the American people about a major event impacting their lives and the nature of our government.
It’s been a bad last few weeks for the nation’s top law enforcement agency. First, an innocent hostage was shot and killed in a botched raid in Houston by an FBI shooter. Then the television movie series “Waco,” debuted and revisited the FBI killings of innocent victims in both Ruby Ridge and Waco. And currently, the Bureau faces charges by members of congress of malfeasance and even interfering in the most recent president election.
President Donald Trump says the media is FAKE NEWS and not reporting on major news stories hurtful to Democrats, such as missing FBI text messages. Some Republican leaders and Fox News Network promote the “Deep State” is also a “Secret Society” of FBI agents planning to destroy the Trump presidency. One Republican Senator states FBI members are meeting off-site to conspire some type of Trump overthrow. Devin Nunes, the duty-bound head of the House Intelligence Committee has created a memo which almost guarantees the destruction of the FBI and Robert Mueller. They all claim the end is near, Mueller is about to go.
As the White House waits to see which, and how many of its present or former, employees made Robert Mueller’s indictment roll, consider Mueller’s end game. It isn’t Trump, per se, though many would hope otherwise. It’s Russia. The FBI, which Mueller once headed, has always been at the forefront of combatting communism in America.
