Thoughts On the Preliminary Results of the Mueller Report

After nearly two-years of speculation and news reports, the Mueller Report was finally released earlier today.

I have to admit that the results, even in this preliminary stage are a bit disappointing. While Robert Mueller‘s team was not able to conclude without a reasonable doubt that you know who or his team colluded with Russia, they have not been completely exonerated of the charges either.

In spite of the disappointment, there are three silver linings.

  1. There have been a number of convictions based on the information that Mueller and his team was able to find.
  2. The judicial system works. Free from Presidential control, Robert Mueller and those who reported to him were able to do a thorough investigation.
  3. Because you know who and his aides were not exonerated, there is still a chance that somewhere, someone slipped up.

The next step is for the full report to be submitted to Congress and the American people.

What’s done is done. We cannot go backwards, we can only go forwards. My hope is that this is enough that come time for next year’s Presidential election to sway the voters to someone who is not a corrupt, snake oil, used car salesman with the temperament and maturity of a four-year old.

Methinks The Gentleman is Jealous: Thoughts On You Know Who’s Comments About John McCain

I’ve never had the inclination to make a career out of public service. But I admire those who do.

The late Senator John McCain spent his adult life in public service; first in the military and then in government.  When he passed away last summer, his passing left a hole in this country that will never be filled.

Last week, you know who went after the late Senator in the same way that a school yard bully attacks a classmate whom they perceive to be weak.

Methinks the gentleman (if you want to call him that) is jealous. Senator McCain made public service his life’s work for his adult life. He fought for this country and her citizens during the Vietnam War. After being captured and tortured, he refused release. After retiring from military service, he spent thirty plus years in the service of the American voter. In every sense of the word, he is a hero.

I could go on, but I will let the late Senator’s daughter speak, as only she can.

P.S. I have to wonder where Senator McCain’s Republican “friends” are on this matter? Are they man or woman enough to stand up to you know who or are they more concerned about saving their own skins?
