Shooter James Hodgkinson: Lone Wolf or Act of Rage?

They were simply practicing for a baseball game, ,attending a Christmas Party, dancing at a nightclub, children at school, sitting in a movie theater, working in a high-rise office building, spectators watching a marathon, folks taking an evening stroll along the promenade; examples of simple routines challenged by one of the most twisted affronts, save for aborting a child, to the conscience one can think of; the taking of Human Life.

The various stewards of our fashionably civil culture have moved away from reverent outrage and on to the snap-shot approach where honest inquiry is avoided and the clean-lines of prepared inside-the box script is preferred. The Lone Wolf reference is such an example, two words and there you have it, nice, clean and appropriate, everything explained.

Sessions in Session before Senate Intelligence Committee

There was only three things to take away from today’s hearing:

(1) A.G. Sessions appearance served to further illustrate the contemptible behavior of James Comey and that his dismissal was appropriate.

(2) That unless ruled by Committee Chair Richard Burr during the hearing, A.G. Sessions has no obligation to report or otherwise disclose the content of his private conversations with the President.

An entirely different level of anointed outcome and one which, at this moment as we consider the various smearing-by-innuendo taking place in Washington, has no intention of giving way its privilege.

Comey-The Paralysis of Truth!

Setting aside for the moment that President Trump ignores the anemic and self-serving protocols of the predatory government bureaucracy and that his doing so allows the public to observe just how comprehensively corrupt the system is, the fact remains that regardless of which support-group one might favor it should be clear, by now, the Former FBI Director is the poster-child for the politically-corrupt second only to Messrs. McCain, Graham, Schiff and Schumer. A couple of key points, in no particular order, in support of my observation:

Comey- Draining a Puddle!

I’m annoyed by the syrupy deference offered Public Officials; a sort of wholesale reverence that transcends reason or justification particularly when the standards of performance are so incredibly low. Where the bar that would otherwise constitute a breach-of-duty and get one fired is seemingly an unachievable trigger-point.
