Russian Probe: Attorney General William Barr letter on the Special Counsel Mueller Report to the Judiciary Committee Chairmen Sen. Graham & Rep. Nadler (29.03.2019)

The Mueller Report is out: What gives?

Whatever you see you gotta keep a sense of humor; you gotta be able to smile through all the bullshit.”Tupac Shakur

Well, first thing first, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller Investigatory Report into Collusion, Obstruction of Justice and Electoral Malpractice is still in the limbo. Even if the third Attorney General under President Donald J. Trump, AG William Barr released a letter yesterday, out-lining what he saw fit. We don’t know the full extent of this investigation, neither the results or the proper findings of. Just mere coincidental information, that the AG saw purposeful to produce.

Therefore, at this mere junction in time. We don’t know how much information, what sort of intelligence or outreach the Trump Administration, the Trump Transition Team nor the Trump Campaign Team did with the Russians. Neither, what sort of connections and deals been made in the lurking shadows of the businesses, that the current day President has. Even the Trump Tower Moscow, the connection to Felix Sater Bayrock Group LLC and all the other shady agreements the Trump Organization have done over the years. Because, surely there is plenty and that’s why the President never released his tax-returns to the public.

With all this in mind, with all the indictments, all the counts of crimes put on individuals connected to Trump World. Still, the Presidency and the GOP claims that the President is vindicated. That is happening before the people have read the hard-copy of the Report, nor seen the pages or the exhibits connected to the passages in the Report. It is like black-magic, like a spell put on these gentlemen. To have all the answers without reading the whole paper.

When, in knowledge of what is already out there of information on the matter. With the loans, the pay-offs, the sudden swift changes of hacked emails and close proxies of the Trump Campaign. As they needed some juicy intel on Clinton to make him look like the golden goose. When he really wasn’t and his own people was in connection with Russian counterparts, which they never testified to do or even dared to clear before entering into office. If this was Michael Cohen, George Papadapolous, Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Junior, Jeff Sessions or Paul Manafort. None of this disclosed this before taking part or being a part of the campaign. Therefore, they are already indicating something wasn’t right with their operation. Still, the GOP and President claims, that everything is cool and dandy. Like nothing happen.

We can see a pattern, we can see the narratives and there are reasons to question it all. As the Trump Campaign and the Trump Administration acts like it has done on this. All along claimed innocence, but brutally assaulted others whose been in similar business. The Trump presidency have attacked Clinton and Obama, but not seen what they do themselves. They have claimed unsecure emails, but Kushner, Ivanka Trump and the President has used unsecured cellphones, private email servers and the President have even disclosed secrets within the bounds of the White House directly to Russian State Officials. That is how blatant disregard the President have for rule of law and following protocol. Because, no law and no justice system have ever touched him, he has always gotten away.

Even now, he thinks he can dig the report into dirt and hope people forget about it. That they forget about all the implicated people, all the detained and indicted people in his close circle. The ones that has shared time and space with him. That he has done business with and also conducted campaign planning with. This is the President of United States, ladies an Gentlemen.

We have to see the reported, unsealed and released to the Public. So, the public and the law-enforcement can act upon the crimes and alleged crimes committed. Not, just hearsay from a Trump Crony.

It is time to reveal it and unleash it on the world. Not just a 4 pages letter, which doesn’t say much. Even articles upon articles on this investigation says more, the court documents already produced and the counts of criminal conspiracy combined with the evidence produced. Shows there are more than what the AG said yesterday.

It is to early to be determine, but I’ll be damned if all of this ends like this. It was to damn easy, if this was the end of the two year long investigation. This is modern day Frank Lucas investigation. Time for the white privilege and the President to answer for all possible crimes, from blue-collar to possible conspiracy against the state. Because, that should be the end game, after the all the connections and communications done in secrecy and with intent. This shouldn’t be overshadowed and forgotten. That quick. We shouldn’t accept that. Not today and not tomorrow. Peace.

White House Sack-Race Continues: Bill Shine, apparently stopped shining!

Most of the energy of political work is devoted to correcting the effects of mismanagement of government”Milton Friedman

This White House and Trump Administration have a special place when concerning to its Communication Directors. Because during the tenure of President Donald J. Trump, there have officially been today 5 Communication Directors. That is impressive, concerning that the President only have been in power since January 2017.

The White House and President today accepted the resignation of Bill Shine as the Communication Director and Assistance to the President. He is following suit of Hope Hicks, Anthony Scaramucci, Sean Spicer and Michael Dubke. All of these has at one point been in this role and served the President.

Scaramucci still have the record in this Presidency as 10 days being at the helm. While Shine gotten a longer time in the role, than Hicks, but that is just about 20 days more. As Hicks got 225 days and Shine got about 246 days. We can all say that is short time to anything significant anywhere. Not that Scaramucci or Spicer even made an impact, except for jokes on SNL, Late Night with Stephen Colbert and Daily Show with Trevor Noah. They have made major impact there, but not elsewhere, even if they are pundits now.

So, Bill Shine is the 5th Communication Director, whose been in this White House. Barrack Obama also had 5 Communication Director, but that was during his two 4 year terms. That shows more consistency, because that has been lacking with this administration. Not that there is anywhere or anything that is consistent with Trump, except for lies, deception and acts of contempt of the office his carrying.

That is why, the act of having people about 200 days in their office, shows how little time or ability the President have to keep his staff. Even if Shine is becoming part of the Re-Election Team for Trump for 2020, as a Senior Adviser there. He is still leaving and ensuring the President needs to hire his sixth communication director.

That what this President do and does. Shine isn’t shining anymore, even he was the favourable pick. As he has the statute of a man, that the President looks for, someone that sexual harass woman, just like the President does.

President Trump, good luck finding someone good now. As we see, the appointment of someone by you, will not last long. It will be short stint and your reputation will be gone. Therefore, not that attractive place to work. Unless your a hack or someone who has already been disgraced by their actions in the past. That is why Shine was fitting as the fifth. Now, who will be the sixth? Peace.

Nepotism103: Cutting Corners to keep the Family Close [Kushner-Ivanka Edition]

Well, over the recent day, there been news of a John Kelly of last year trying to stop the White House from giving Security Clearance to Jared Kushner, surely there would be speculations into the wife as well, Ivanka Trump, who is the daughter of the President, both who are in informal or non-specific roles in the Trump Administration. They are there, but not really there. Which makes the whole arrangement more hectic.

However, ever since winning the election, these two, the power-couple behind the President. Has lingered around him. Not that they have any expertise or knowledge in public administration. No, they are just relatives of the President and therefore, trusted counsel. They are not what you say, career civil servants nor been ideological driven to get the position they are in. It is not because of their education or their profession, they have no experience and no merits to prove their value. Therefore, only the blood-line and the relations are the reasons.

That is why it is even more striking, that the power-couple behind the President are under fire today again. Because of an issue that lasted so long. They went so long without proper security clearances. It is now proven that the President demanded the son-in-law to get the Top Secret Security Clearance, even if he could be compromised, lied about foreign communications and other forms, which is used to prove scrutiny and eligibility for security clearances in the White House. The same was done by his wife Ivanka, as she also had revise her forms and information to the officials for Security Clearance.

These two wouldn’t have gotten away with it, if they weren’t related with the President. The White House has already been in a hot mess of the Security Clearances, as there been plenty with interim security clearances and not gotten properly integrated and following protocol, as the staff is supposed to be clear and trustworthy of such. As they are keeping state secrets and ensuring the safety of the Republic. However, instead there been plenty of questionable behaviour and connections, that even the ones who was already flagged and in question got appointed with the likes of Gen. Michael Flynn.

What we have seen and read is yet another step of nepotism. Where the President has resident and ruled in favour of his family and his closest kin over the Republic. Where the President are ordering for his own sake and not for the safety of the Republic. That is why Security Clearance given to Jared Kushner is done in spite of the laws. The same can be said about the position and abilities Ivanka has too in the White House. They are there because of the President and nothing else.

This is what Tin-Pot dictators does. This is what autocrats and tyrants do, because they doesn’t trust anyone else than family. This is like the mafia and crime-families, this is not actions made by government or public administrations, which are taken serious. They would hire and appoint people of expertise and merits in the fields. Not hire family members and give them ultimate security clearances without having an official office or position in the Cabinet.

Instead, they are two internal satellites within the West Wing. Doing whatever they like, as their mission, their value to staff is bound by family loyalty and not by any ordinary function. They are not afraid of being fired or retired. The family will always take care of them. They are as thick as thieves and maybe they are. Since the investigations are following them and they have to answer for the public for the orders and the appointment of themselves. Since, it is a public administration and not a Sopranos. Feel me?

Kushner, explain yourself, why you revised your documents a million times, John Kelly didn’t advance you and later you still got clearance! Explain, also Mr. President explain that and why Ivanka got a vital role, when none is doing anything significant. Peace.
