I can’t seem to pull my thoughts together this week. It’s my ACDC, or maybe it’s the overwhelming amount of political criminal behavior in the news that has gotten to me. The bad guys are winning—for now.
This story is heartbreaking. Video footage of the murder of a 25-year young black man, Ahmaud Arbery, jogging in the early afternoon went viral. Arbery was shot three times, by an ex-county police officer and his son, while a third man drove behind the jogger filming the incident and preventing his escape. The third man can be heard cocking his gun. Arbery’s murderers are white.
Public outrage generated by the video forced the hand of the district attorney’s office who now claim that seeing the video prompted them to make the arrests of the father and son. It was the public viewing of the video that forced the arrests. An alibi had been concocted that a string of burglaries was committed in the area by someone who fit the description of the jogger. No such burglaries occurred.
Seventy-four days passed before the arrests of the father and son. The third suspect is under investigation as are the prosecutors who failed to take action against their former employee. They had ruled that there was no crime.

Last week we talked about hospitals reporting that federal agents were seizing their supplies. Now we know why.
This next story didn’t surprise me at all, but it angered me to a point that I momentarily lost consciousness (luckily I was sitting down with my feet up,) and had to be resuscitated with a little can of sparkling rose’, a big slice of vegan chocolate cake. Then I cranked up my heated mattress pad and put myself to bed. I was that mad.
Brandon Van Grack, a highly respected Department of Justice attorney, the lead prosecutor in the case of Michael Flynn, withdrew from confessed traitor Michael Flynn’s case minutes before Attorney General Bill Barr filed a motion to dismiss. Although it appears Flynn is off the hook, this is not a done deal, a judge still has the final say. Which judge?
Attorney General Bill Barr’s announcement of Flynn’s exoneration is a blatant disregard for the constitution. Flynn is, by every definition, a traitor. His long list of crimes against the US was pushed aside when he made a plea deal to cooperate with Robert Mueller early in his investigation.
Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying about two conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak:
In December of 2016, Flynn promised Kislyak that newly imposed sanctions against Russia, by President Obama, for their interference in the 2016 election, would never be enforced. That wheeling and dealing with foreign entities, before the jackass was inaugurated, was undermining the current administration, which is illegal, and Flynn lied about it to the FBI.
Flynn also admitted that he lied when he said he didn’t remember that Kislyak replied that if true, Russia would “not take retaliatory measures.”
Flynn admitted that he had consulted “senior members” of 45’s team on what to tell Kislyak. He reported both conversations to a “very senior transition official,” unnamed in court documents.
Michael “lock her up Flynn” who is guilty of far more serious crimes, confessed to lying twice, and in return, his traitorous spawn was not indicted and he was promised the recommendation of an absurdly minimal sentence. He has not, and will not, spend a single night in prison because there is no law in Trump’s America.
Remember when Trump said that Flynn lied to Pence, so he had to fire him.
Pence already knew everything, and he still does.
In December of 2018, when Flynn tried to retract his guilty plea, Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, who had seen all the evidence and was to sentence Flynn, told him “arguably you sold your country out.” And sentencing was postponed.
Michael Flynn’s indictment was not based on a technicality. He was getting off easy.
Bill Barr, Trump’s Attorney General, has been busy. In addition to his work to exonerate Flynn, and Stone before that, he lied about the contents of the Mueller report and withheld it for a month before allowing congress and the public to see a heavily redacted version. Congress has been fighting to get the un-redacted version and corresponding evidence.
Acting on the request of the Attorney General, Chief Justice John Roberts has paused an order requiring the Trump administration to give Congress Robert Mueller’s documents. If not for Barr’s obstruction of justice, Congress would have been given the full Mueller report as soon as he submitted it.
I wish Mueller would speak up.
REPORTER: “How will history look back on your decision to drop charges against Flynn?”
BILL BARR: “Well, history is written by the winners. So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.”
Someone must tell Fred Flintstone that in today’s world of internet communication the truth will dictate history.
“By dropping the case against Flynn, the Justice Dept lost 50 years worth of ground in maintaining its independence post-Watergate.
Once again, Bill Barr is doing Trump’s dirty work.
And once again, Barr has undermined the legitimacy of our justice system and the rule of law.”~ Adam Schiff
😍I LOVE ADAM SCHIFF!👈🏻exclamation point.
In response to Bill Barr’s bullshit, Adam Schiff has released transcripts that show Michael Flynn for the traitor he is. Story link below.
Is it possible that Trump’s regime will be taken down by a Democrat hoax Chinese virus? Wouldn’t that be ironic.
Trump hasn’t shown any sympathy for the Americans who have died because of the ”the democrat’s hoax” virus.
COVID19 related deaths in the US:
- 76,000 and climbing,
- 2976 died on September 11, 2001.
Karma may work slowly, but she will be thorough, and she’s just getting warmed up. The following White House Staff have been infected with COVID19:
- Trump’s Personal Valet (fancy title for the guy who brings him his hamberders.)
- Pence’s Press Secretary Katy Miller (married to baby cager, Steven.) Steven Miller is self isolating, and some reports say he has tested positive. This would mark the first case of human to bat transmission.

- Ivanka Personal Assistant tested positive.
- 34 Secret Service Agents have tested positive. 11 currently have the virus, 34 are recovered, and several others are in quarantine. (Why are we just now hearing about this?)
I hope the good people mentioned above recover without suffering— the good people. The probability of the infection spreading to everyone in the White House will be unmasked soon.
Speaking of unmasked, the day after he received the information that his food taster has the virus, Trump met with surviving veterans of WWII, all in their 90’s. He did not wear a mask, neither did they, likely out of respect for his authority. The vets stood downwind. His press secretary responded to questions about this by saying essentially that the vets weren’t forced to attend.
Trump has not cancelled plans to host GOP senators for lunch in the White House despite coming in close contact with coronavirus-infected valet.
One last item. Here is a list of the large corporations who took government COVID19 relief money intended for small business, leaving none for the small businesses.
The bad guys may be winning this week, but tomorrow is another week.
