Constitutional Crisis? - And Response

Monday, May 13, 2019

Constitutional crisis is just the latest buzz phrase. I am missing something. Barr worked with Mueller and Rosenstein to complete the redactions on the Mueller report. The items redacted consisted primarily of three categories:

1. National security items which cannot be revealed

2. Grand jury testimony which by law cannot be revealed 

3. Information relating to ongoing investigations which cannot be revealed

The Democrats want to break the law to end Trump's presidency. They want to discredit Barr because they know his next stop is to find out all the details of how our national security institutions were weaponized against Trump.

Bring on Mueller to testify. If he parts from his report by a fraction of a millimeter, there is a true crisis. I don’t believe that he will.

Yes.  Mr. Ladd, it would be great if Mueller was brought before Congress and sworn in followed up with some questions that need to be answered by him concerning the following; 

At what time were you aware of the fictitious nature of the Steele dossier which was used to generate FISA warrants? 

At what time were you aware of the efforts to surveil (or can I say “spy”) and to plant informants (or can I call them “spies”) in the Trump camp based upon those warrants?   

And now for the $69,000 question: 

How were you involved in the Uranium One deal where 20 percent of the United States uranium deposits are now controlled by Russia (you know, the boogie man that Trump supposedly colluded with) that the Clinton Foundation received substantial compensation for “speaking engagements”. Yes, the uranium samples you yourself delivered to Russia.

Don’t see it happening anytime soon until Mr. Mueller receives his indictment.

McClendon Is Bad For Teachers

The teacher raise proposal was simple, 2.5 percent from the county, 2.5 percent from the state. After his massive tax hike was turned down, Superintendent Johnson dropped the county match in favor of more support staff. Fine; that's his prerogative, and a 5 percent raise on top of step raises is unheard of in the private sector anyway. Tucker McClendon has now proposed misappropriating ... (click for more)
