Going Nuclear

The hardest thing about writing a blog today is narrowing the focus. There's the predicted Liz Cheney primary loss... there's the legislative successes of President Biden... there's Rudy Ghouliani's lost cause to avoid testifying in GA.... So much stuff.

However, the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lardo is just too rich to ignore, especially with all the sub-stories swirling around the main one. As this has developed, TFG's excuses morphed from "It's a hoax" to "they planted evidence" to "I declassified them" to "everybody does it" to JOE BIDEN'S LAPTOP! HER EMAILS!! PELOSI!!!

Those of us who don't think of TFG as the next coming of Christ aren't the least bit surprised. Okay, maybe a bit happily surprised that his hubris may finally do him in (although he's managed to get away with SO much so far). After all, he's carelessly leaked secrets before:

Yeah, But

Last Tuesday, we woke to the news that the FBI conducted a search at The Mar-A-Lago club. A lot of stuff was seized by the Feds. There has been a lot mentioned that this is his private residence. However, it should be noted that while he was allowed to live there, he is considered an employee of the private club.

Fear and Loathing

There was once a King who with his queen had a child. An oracle told him that he "is doomed to perish by the hand of his own son."

Well, in response, that ruler ordered his Queen to kill their son. She couldn't and had a servant do so instead. But the servant didn't. Instead, the child was left to die on a scorching mountaintop. A Shepard found the child and saved his life.

Going Down

It was a day that will live in infamy... No, not the bombing of Pearl Harbor, but the first time the FBI had to raid TFG's "home". I am referring, of course, to the early morning raid on Mar-a-Lardo, where the FBI confiscated several boxes of documents. Considering the political and legal ramifications, this must be a fairly advanced and solid case.

Note: for easy of writing and clarity, I will break my self-imposed blog rule, and use TFG's name for the rest of this missive...

Good Morning.

Given the size of our hammer, we are always finding nails. As a result, there will always be veterans. Much of the world is dragged along into "our wars", but today we're going to take a look at something slightly different.

Yesterday, the Senate Dems passed the Inflation Reduction Act via reconciliation. Reconciliation votes remove the filibuster and it passed on party lines with Vice President Harris casting the tie-breaking vote. Not one member of the other party voted for it.
