In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

I wonder if They Realize They've Been Played?

Trump instructed the declassification of certain documents requested by some Senators. The Senators, sworn to secrecy, can't release the unredacted documents to the public, but are certain the information revealed will reveal an intentional effort the defy the rules of law, and to change the United States in violation of the methods outlined in the Constitution.

Apparently, there's some in the DOJ, the FBI and in Congress that are willing to break some serious laws in defiance of the instructions. That's their prerogative, but after Trump fires those he can, they are only a short step from being charged with a felony. As far as members of Congress, they will take a different stance, if they suddenly realize they can't hold public office as felons.

Trump set a huge trap. Even within the short time he set the trap, it's obvious he might need to tell Sessions to have his U.S. Attorneys to be ready, or to empty his desk. Either way, what's called the "Deep Sate" is in serious trouble, they know this, and I'm betting there will be plenty of people willing to spill the beans to avoid prosecution.

Let the games begin. This will be interesting to watch.

It's Time For Them To Vote

The weenies calling themselves Senators need to suck it up, vote, and either confirm Kavenaugh, or continue their feckless adventure in "leadership". The supposed attempted rape victim is either a rube to hold the confirmation past the mid-terms, or seriously disturbed. Either way, there's no reason to avoid the responsibilities demanded by the Constitution.

As far as the media: They'll continue to lie, create fiction, and do their best to destroy the Trump presidency. Otherwise, business as usual with the seditionists, and their masters.

What Will We Find Out?

Trump orders the feds to declassify documents that might show what the Democrats don't want anyone to see. That, and expose faults in the FISA court system, criminal actions by government officials, and how the Muellor investigation was founded completely on hearsay from a dubious source.

So, we shall see what happens. Will Sessions demand a criminal investigation? Will FISA courts issue writs to officials involved with the subterfuge? Will Muellor's investigation end due to a lack of evidence and a specific charge? I hope so. This needs to end, people need to go to jail, and the United States needs to be placed back into the hands of the citizens.

Still Morning

We had a short shower yesterday evening. It left mostly clear skies, but off to the East were towering clouds that turned deep orange in the setting sun. As the sun faded, the dying thunderstorms filled the distant sky with lightning to add to the pale light of the lightning bugs.

This morning, as I sat on the porch, it was still. Only a few of the night insects were still singing. I watched as the light slowly revealed the pasture across the road. The distant trees were silhouettes and a thin ground fog hid the short grass. The lightest of leaves hung completely still.

The sky turned from a dim gray, to a dull blue, and the orange horizon soon promised the start of the day would be clear.

The mocking birds sang their morning song, and off in the distance, the dull thud of shotguns announced the start of the hunting day for those taking advantage of dove season.

The coffee was good, and the peaceful setting allowed me time to just sit and think. Not about anything important, but about how these simple moments are when worries can be pushed away, and the enjoyment of simple things clears away the things that can overwhelm, when allowed.

I don't know what the day will reveal, but it had a good start. Sunday doesn't demand getting ready for work, or the early trip to the office. That's what Sundays are for. After all, even God took a break on this day, and that's a good enough reason for me.

Do You Want to Bet?

John Kerry broke the law by illegal meeting with Iran officials.  I'm betting nothing happens to him, although a less polite society would have his execution scheduled for tomorrow morning.
