IG Report effectively destroys Mueller.

While Mueller will most likely fuck around and play Encyclopedia Brown for a while longer. The Basis of his investigation is a smoldering wreck.

Remember it was the firing of James Comey which is said to be the basis of obstruction of justice charge.

So now there was never any collusion, and the best hope for obstruction has been torpedoed. Looks like a bad day for those who were looking to oust Trump. Can someone play sad trombone?

What will a successful North Korea summit....

do for the Trump presidency? If he is successful in getting North Korea to lay down its nuclear wealons or lays down a framework to do so, how large will his political base become? I tend to think talk of impeachment disappears almost completely. We will see.

California is a dump...

5th largest economy in the world....yes. Interestingly however, it also has the highest tax rate, the worst income disparity in the US, and the highest poverty rate in the US. I thought a progressive society would be better for the United States????

Avengers: Infinity War Political Review...

My kids like superhero movies, so, much to my chagrin but in an effort to please them, we went to see Avengers this weekend.

It was what I have come to expect from a Superhero movie but with a tragic "Empire Strikes Back," tone.

The major take away from the film is that the main protagonist, Thanos, is a Malthusian Liberal.

Thanos seeks to make the universe a "better place," because as he presents it, the universe cannot support do many souls.

In one scene with his daughter Gamora, we find that she is adopted from another planet and he had decimated the population because the souls were perpetually hungry and scraping for their
needs. Gamora presents a very libertarian viewpoint, "We were perfectly happy."

Thanos seeks more power by retrieving Infinity stones which seem to hold power over differing aspects of life. It seemed a perfect allegory for progressive politics. Give me more power and liberty and I will make your life "better." No self determination, no personal effort, just Thanos, errr government. We will simply reach a point when we can blink everything away.

At one point Thanos kills his daughter, the only thing he SAYS he loves in order to have more power. Makes sense, Mao said "political power grows from the barrel of a gun." How much different are progresives with their interest in the police power of the state?

Check it out, see what you think.

Why aren't more liberals advocates of immigration control?

There are a number of problems with immigration. For conservatives the issue is simple, if they do not belong here they should be purged. For liberals, the issue is decidedly more complex because there are so many conflict in the issue.

1. Liberal affinity groups, namely African-American voting blocs tend not to be fond of immigrant groups.

2. Immigrant groups depress wages and take labor positions that would lift the wages of the lower class whom liberals tend to try and encompass and weaken labor unions as immigrants tend to represent a high number of low skilled and semi-skilled labor who are willing to take lower than the prevailing wage.

3. Immigrants fill up available housing which increases the property value, creating a negative affect of the lower classes.

4. Immigrants pay into Social Security when they work under false SS#, money they may never be able to collect. This raises fairness issues that liberals are usually keen to.

There are a variety of others. Why exactly are liberals so opposed to immigration restrictions and the enforcement of current laws?

Why Trump cannot submit to an interview...

I was thinking about this the past few days. I am conviced Trump cannot sit down for an interview in light of the fact that the FBI and who know who else were spying on his organization.

It is impossible for him to get a fair interview when it js impossible to know what the prosecutor is curating. Trump has no idea what may have been recorded from a year prior and in what context his words might be twisted. For him to submit in light of the fact that moles were put into his campaign is a perjury trap.

The Three Musketeers...

I just got done reading the old Alexandre Dumas book again. Interesting how closely it seems to fit the situation we find ourselves.

The King of France is betrayed by his personal bodyguard who are assisting Cardinal Richlieu.

Like Trump being betrayed by the FBI in assistance to the DNC.

Dumas was a profit...prophet? Or has this shit happened before?


Edit: For my fuck-up.

China Agrees to purchase significantly more Ag products...MAGA?

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trade-china/u-s-china-agree-to-increased-trade-cooperation-idUSKCN1IK0PM

So much for Trump's wreckless use of tariffs. Seems like American Competitive advantage in Ag production continues.

I think Trump won most of the Midwest for 2020 in this bold stroke.
