A TALE OF TWO MOBS

Vassar Bushmills Since 2006 I’d watched Republicans, including many conservatives, fed up with Party choices going back to Bob Dole in ‘96, hand our government over to first the Congressional Democrats, then, even after the Democrat’s dark side had revealed itself, still refuse to stop the bleeding. I thought perhaps that Obama [Read More]

One Ring to Rule Them All

Vassar Bushmills When a political end trumps personal destruction of the innocent, we know we are among evil people, from Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, to DiFi, to CNN and dozens more. The cynical indifference to the infliction of pain and suffering on innocent people is the greatest sin… …cold blooded murder or [Read More]

NO MORAL EQUIVALENCE BEWTEEN WITNESSES AT KAVANAUGH HEARING

Vassar Bushmills Very clearly, Christine Blasey Ford lied during her time in the spotlight at Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh. It’s a sort of law that when an accuser, under oath, says a thing was done to her by a named fellow “100%”, as Blasey Ford did yesterday, and then that named [Read More]

LAWYERS’ WIVES AND REFORMED WHORES

Vassar Bushmills I’m not sure who first used this title, and it may even have been me, in 2009, when I wrote a short essay on “Homer Simpson and the Constitution” at RedState.com The line had nothing to do with the content of the essay, and the content of the essay flew [Read More]

WHEN LOGIC IS THE ONLY EVIDENCE

Vassar Bushmills When Logic is the Only Evidence, it is Outcome Determinative 1) As we know, even prostitutes can be sexually assaulted. This occurs when they did not invite being touched, or the other person did not proffer payment as promised. The only exemption from that rule is their pimp, who, by the [Read More]

THE 2018 ELECTION HEIST, A CALL TO ARMS

Vassar Bushmills Why would the Left be puffing up numbers of a Blue Wave when the numbers don’t justify that…unless they have an alternate plan as to how to make those numbers seem real? The numbers don’t add up. It makes no sense for anyone with a family, unless wealthy, [Read More]

GAIJIN (ガイジン)

Vassar Bushmills Gaijin, pronounced “guy-jin” is a Japanese word meaning “foreigner”. But it is much more than that. I lived in Japan 1972-1975 as an Army officer. And I had studied Japanese for four semesters in college to satisfy my language requirements. A solid C-student, I came away with the [Read More]

ROBERT MUELLER, A THEORY OF THE MAN

Vassar Bushmills There have always been two theories about Robert Mueller, actually three, which I laid out in a piece a little over a year ago. I still hold that how he sees himself in History may be outcome determinative. (I listed “History” at #8 in that list. ) Using the laws [Read More]

THE CIB, THE LIGHT THAT COMMANDS THE ROOM

Vassar Bushmills As you already know, I’m the garritrooper in this outfit, “too far forward to wear a tie, and too far to the rear to get shot at.” But that doesn’t mean that I don’t know some things about wading in muck up to my elbows, sleeping on hard [Read More]

“ADULTERY”

Vassar Bushmills Anyone under 40 will not remember, and certainly find no modern relevance in Radar O’Reilly, played by Gary Burghoff in the M.A.S.H. TV series, 1972-1983. He was a 20-something corporal in an Army surgical hospital unit in the Korean War. It was a comedy. Everyone else in the [Read More]

TRADE BRINKSMANSHIP, NOT TRADE WAR, VERSUS GLOBALISM

Vassar Bushmills “Trade War” is a term the enemies of Donald Trump use to denigrate his proposals for restoring a balance to American trade policies. Only it’s not “trade war” but trade brinkmanship, which, as it was first used to define JFK’s strategy against the USSR in his years in the White House, were intended [Read More]

THE TWO FACES OF THE DEEP STATE AND “THE PEOPLE”

Vassar Bushmills So when they say “the FBI, or DOJ or CIA said this, or did that”, your first thought should be, “Which one?” Especially if it’s the media telling you these things. Also, never forget that is has been this way since at least JFK. In 1998 a man asked me to help [Read More]

DIRTY COPS, DIRTY PROSECUTORS, AND NOW, DIRTY JUDGES

Vassar Bushmills I’m not here to talk about the facts inferred in the title, but our incessant impatience that it all hasn’t been laid bare for us so far. There are several reasons, some fact-based, matching hard evidence to hard law to hard rules of criminal procedure, this latter only [Read More]

21 AND STUPID

Vassar Bushmills Every college kid remembers when he turned 21 because it was the day he could use his own drivers’ license to get into the Boom-Boom Room. That was in the first semester of my sophomore year, 1966. There were a lot of laws, even ancient ones, that were in [Read More]
