loyalty


Astonishingly some of the family members of leaders we have killed have pledged to avenge their father's death.  #greatnegotiatorpleasedon'tstartwar

Trump obsessively demands loyalty to HIM.  I would much prefer he be confident enough to demand loyalty to US or America.  What would be wrong with THAT?

Just figured out why my airplane ticket is so cheap.  It stops in Beaumont.  Twice.

Uber.  There is probably money to be made for Uber to open up a special division to pick up and deliver children of divorced parents for visitation.  Many exes don't want to see one another.

Videotape of the Assault Of Elderly Woman At Pool Leads To Arrest Of Prime Suspect

by jonathanturley
imagesThere is an extremely disturbing videotape below of an elderly woman in Florida being abused and assaulted at a pool as teenagers cheered and jeered.  At one point, Leon Balfour Jr., 16, picks up Nancy James, 68, and throws her to the ground.  He then picks her up and tosses her into the pool.  It is a level of unprovoked and spontaneous violence that is truly shocking.  The question is how to deal with a teenager with his level of rage.

Trump’s Inner Nixon: Is It Possible To Have a Cover Up Without An Actual Crime?

by jonathanturley
Below is my column in the Hill Newspaper on the Comey termination and comparisons to the Nixon presidency.  Those analogies deepened this weekend after the President repeated that he thinks that they should just get rid of the daily press briefings that have been such a central part of White House operations for decades.  What is most striking is how, again, the White House has engineered its own undoing.  Many people had called for Comey to be fired, particularly Democrats. However, the timing and manner of the termination has created yet another scandal for the Administration. Only 27 percent of citizens support the decision according to a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.  The growing credibility crisis has made the appointment of a Special Prosecutor (or even the resurrection of the Independent Counsel Act) a priority for many. While I have been a dissenting voice regarding the need for a Special Prosecutor, the Comey debacle has changed my view.  The public deserves an independent investigation into these allegations and related issues.  Perhaps people will be satisfied with the FBI investigation under a new director, but the last week has been so damaging to public confidence that the need for an independent investigation is obvious. Having said that, I am still unsure of the major crime being investigated under the facts that are currently known.  For the moment, this Administration appears intent of self-incriminating actions in the absence of an actual crime.
Here is the column:
